The Massachusetts gubernatorial election will take place on November 4, 2014. Incumbent Deval Patrick (D) is eligible for re-election, as Massachusetts has no gubernatorial term limits. The winner of the election will serve a 4-year term in office.

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.


Note: The following list of candidates is not official and will continue to be updated until the 2014 candidate filing deadline. Candidates will be added as we come across them prior to the deadline. If you see a name of a candidate who is missing, please email us and we will add that name. As the election draws closer, more information will be added to this page.
