Mayor before election

John Marks

Elected Mayor

Andrew Gillum

The 2014 Tallahassee mayoral election took place on August 26, 2014 in the city of Tallahassee, Florida.

Incumbent Mayor John Marks refused to run a third term which resulted in a new seat being open for the candidates. A nonpartisan primary was held between three candidates with Andrew Gillum winning the race by 76 percent.[1]

A run-off election was supposed to be held on November 4 between Gillum and the write-in candidate Evin Matthews. However, Mathews withdrew from the race on August 27, 2014, resulting in Gillum becoming the mayor-elect.[2]
