Widget titles not being displayed

We are having issues getting widget titles to display correctly on our site. The title is there, and can be seen when a user highlights the area where the title should appear, otherwise it shows up as white space. We are using page builder with the twenty fourteen theme of word press. For example http://followmyvote.com/elected-officials/ On this specific page, the text should appear “search by name” above the search bar and above our poll it should display “vote now!”. Hopefully you can help guide us in the right direction, thanks.

    Hi William

    Twenty Fourteen expects widgets to only be applied in the sidebar so it needs some help to properly style widgets in the main container. Use the Custom CSS module in Jetpack or a Custom CSS plugin and insert the following:

    /* Page Builder Twenty Fourteen Primary Content Area Input Fields, Links & Widget Titles */
    #primary .widget input,
    #primary .widget textarea {
        border: 1px solid rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.1);
        border-radius: 2px;
        color: #2b2b2b;
        padding: 8px 10px 7px;
    #primary .widget textarea {
        width: 100%;
    #primary .widget input:focus,
    #primary .widget textarea:focus {
        border: 1px solid rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.3);
        outline: 0;
    #primary .widget a {
    	color: #24890d;
    #primary .widget a:hover {
    	text-decoration: underline;
    #primary .widget-title {
    	color: #111111;

    Just change out my colors for yours. That will sort out your links, widget titles and form fields in widgets in the main content area.
