The Wisconsin gubernatorial election will take place on November 4, 2014. Incumbent Scott Walker (R) is eligible for re-election, as Wisconsin has no gubernatorial term limits. The winner of the election will serve a 4-year term in office.

Wisconsin is one of 14 states that uses an open primary system, in which registered voters do not have to be members of a party to vote in that party's primary.[1][2][3]


Note: The following list of candidates is not official and will continue to be updated until the 2014 candidate filing deadline. Candidates will be added as we come across them prior to the deadline.
