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

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.[1]

The election will fill the Senate seat currently held by Mike Johanns (R). Johanns was first elected in 2008. He announced in February 2013 that he would not seek re-election in 2014.[2][3] He joins a growing list of U.S. Congress incumbents not running for re-election in 2014.
