Voters in Oregon will elect one member to the U.S. Senate in the November 4, 2014 elections.

Oregon is one of 12 states to use a strictly closed primary process, in which the selection of a party's candidates in an election is limited to registered party members.[3][4][5]

The election will fill the Senate seat currently held by Jeff Merkley (D). Merkley 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.
