The November 2014 San Diego general elections were on November 4, 2014, in San Diego, California. A two-round system was used for the election, starting with a primary in June followed by a runoff in November between the top-two candidates if no candidate received a majority of the votes in the first round.

The elections included a single seat to the San Diego City Council. During the June primary, incumbents Myrtle Cole (District 4) and David Alvarez (District 8) won re-election by acquiring the majority of the votes. Lorie Zapf (District 2) was also re-elected in the June primary, but in a different district due to redistricting. Chris Cate won a majority of the votes in the November runoff and was elected to the City Council for District 6.[1]

District 6[edit]

Incumbent council member Lorie Zapf shifted from District 6 to District 2 due to the 2010 redistricting. Chris Cate and Carol Kim received the most votes in the June primary. Since no candidate won a majority, a runoff was held in November to determine the winner. Cate won a majority in the runoff and was elected to the City Council.[1]
