2014 U.S. House Elections

Flag of Nebraska.png
Voters in Nebraska will elect one member to the U.S. Senate in the November 4, 2014 elections.

Nebraska is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. A blanket primary system is used for the nonpartisan legislature and some other statewide races while congressional primary elections are closed.[3]

The election will fill the Senate seat currently held by Mike Johanns (R). Johanns was first elected in 2008, and has announced that he will not be running for re-election in 2014.[4][5] He joins a growing list of U.S. Congress incumbents not running for re-election in 2014.


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.
