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

New York is one of 12 states to use a strictly closed primary process, in which the selection of a party's candidates in an election is limited to registered party members.[1][2][3]

Issues

Residency challenge by Governor Cuomo

The New York Supreme Court began hearings on August 7, 2014 to determine if primary challenger Zephyr Teachout met the five-year residency requirement for ballot placement. A challenge was brought by Gov. Andrew Cuomo(D), who is seeking re-election in November. Martin E. Connor, representing Cuomo's campaign, claimed that Teachout had not spent the last previous years living continuously in New York. Teachout owns a cabin in Vermont, where she spent time in previous summers. Connor also noted that Teachout did not have a state driver's license or change her address to a New York residence until recently.[18]

Teachout supplied evidence to the court in support of her residency, including an account of her move from Vermont to North Carolina to New York in June 2009. She also provided her 2009 tax return with New York address, a Fordham Law School directory and bank statements documenting purchases at New York businesses. Teachout believed that Cuomo's efforts were intended to avoid embarrassment from losing votes to a more liberal candidate.[18] On August 11, Edgar G. Walker ruled against Cuomo's residency challenge, keeping Teachout on the primary ballot.[19]
