Two down ballot state executive positions were up for election in the state of Indiana in 2014. The general election ballot featured candidates for Indiana Treasurer and Indiana Auditor. The general election took place November 4, 2014.

Suzanne Crouch won re-election to the auditor's office against two other candidates, while the treasurer's office received a new occupant as incumbent Daniel Huge replaced term-limited predecessor Richard Mourdock after the filing deadline. Kelly Mitchell (R) won the election to replace Huge.

Indiana is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. Voters are not required to register with a party, but the ballot they get depends on which party they have voted for most often in the past.[1]
