The Illinois gubernatorial election will take place on November 4, 2014. Incumbent Pat Quinn (D) is exploring a run for re-election.

A report released by Governing in December 2012 named him as one of five governors considered vulnerable to losing re-election in the 2013-2014 gubernatorial elections.[1]

Illinois is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. Voters do not have to register with a party, but they do have to choose, publicly, which party's ballot they will vote on at the primary election.[2]

Between November 26-28, 2012 Public Policy Polling surveyed 500 registered Illinois voters through live telephone interviews. The respondents were given a series of hypothetical match-ups between Democratic incumbent Pat Quinn and three potential Republican candidates, and asked which of the two candidates they would vote for in the 2014 election. The margin of error is +/- 4.4%. [18]
