Two down ballot state executive positions are up for election in the state of Massachusetts in 2014. The general election will be held on November 4, 2014.

Massachusetts has a mostly closed primary system, in which the selection of a party's candidates in a primary election is limited to registered members of that party. In Massachusetts, however, independent voters may select which party's primary to vote in.
