The Cygnian cancellarial election of 2014 was the 56th quadrennial cancellarial election. It was held on Thursday, 6 November 2014. The Democratic Labour nominee, Senator Dorian Brandt of South Gascoyne, and his running mate, MNA Charlie Chen of Swanstone, achieved a landslide victory, soundly defeating the National Unity nominee, former President of West Kimberley Matthias Trent and his running mate, former Imperial Secretary for Foreign Affairs and International Relations Julie Bishop.

The incumbent Chancellor, Thomas F. Holt, announced following the 2012 congressional election that he would not be seeking a third cancellarial term. As a result, a fierce competition ensued between candidates for the DLP nomination. It took 6 months of campaigning before Brandt could secure a victory over initial front-runner Alice Howe in June 2014. Comparatively, the National Unity Party's nominee Matthias Trent secured his party's nomination with ease, becoming the presumptive nominee by March.

Nevertheless, Brandt would go on to win a decisive victory over Trent, winning 80% of the votes, and achieving a majority in 12 of the 18 states and 3 of the 6 territories. Even in an era dominated by the DLP, it was a surprising landslide, and Brandt entered office with an approval rating of 72% – the highest entry approval rating since Felix Colgan's in 1905.
