United States gubernatorial elections were held on November 8, 1994 in 36 states and two territories. Many seats held by Democratic governors switched to the Republicans during the time known as the Republican Revolution.

Heading into the election, there were 21 seats held by Democrats, 14 held by Republicans, and one by an independent. By the end of the elections, 11 seats would be held by Democrats, 24 by Republicans, and one by an independent.

The elections coincided with the mid-term elections for the United States Senate and the United States House of Representatives. As of 2019, it is the last time that Democrats have won gubernatorial elections in Florida and Nebraska.
