The Minnesota secretary of state election will take place on November 4, 2014. Incumbent Mark Ritchie (D) was first elected in 2006 and won re-election in 2010. Although eligible for re-election in 2014, Ritchie said in a June 2013 statement that he will not run for a third term.[1]

Minnesota is one of 14 states that uses an open primary system, in which registered voters do not have to be members of a party to vote in that party's primary.[2][3][4]
