California 2014 ballot propositions
Eight statewide ballot propositions are certified for the 2014 ballot in California: Two on the state's June ballot and six on the state's November ballot. The two measures on the June ballot were approved by voters.
Two of the 2014 certified ballot propositions had previously been approved to appear on ballots in earlier years. The Rainy Day Fund Amendment and the Water Bond Measure had previously been scheduled for the state's 2012 ballot. However, when Gov. Brown signed SB 202 on October 7, 2011, the Rainy Day Fund Amendment was moved to the 2014 ballot.

Note that initiative sponsors sometimes file multiple versions of what is essentially the same ballot initiative with the Attorney General of California. Each version is given its own summary date and circulation date. This means that while the circulation deadline may come and go on one version of the initiative without signatures being filed, the initiative itself may still be alive, if its sponsors are pinning their hopes on a later version of the initiative with a deadline farther in the future.
