United States Senate elections in Alaska, 2014
November 4, 2014
August 19, 2014
Alaska has a mixed primary system, in which parties decide who may vote in their primary election. The Alaska Democratic Party, Alaska Libertarian Party and Alaskan Independence Party allow any registered voters. The Alaska Republican Party allows only registered Republicans, nonpartisan or undeclared voters.
The election will fill the Senate seat currently held by Mark Begich (D). Begich was first elected in 2008.
Note: Prior to the signature filing deadline, candidates will be added when Ballotpedia writers come across declared candidates. 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.
Most vulnerable seats
The Fiscal Times compiled a list of the seven most vulnerable Senate seats up for election in 2014. The seven included in the list are: Alaska, Arkansas, Iowa, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Dakota, and West Virginia. Going into the 2014 election, all seven seats are held by Democrats.
Democratic incumbent Mark Begich defeated Ted Stevens in 2008 to win the seat. However, the potential loss of jobs at Eielson Air Force Base near Fairbanks could cause Begich to take a hit in his bid for re-election.
