The Texas lieutenant gubernatorial election will take place on November 4, 2014. Incumbent David Dewhurst (R) was first elected in 2002 and will seek a fourth term as lieutenant governor in the 2014 election.[1]

Texas is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. Voters do not have to register with a party. At the primary, they may choose which party primary ballot to vote on, but in order to vote they must sign a pledge declaring they will not vote in another party's primary or convention that year.[2][3]


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.
