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 has a mixed primary system, in which 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]
