Two measures are certified for the 2014 ballot in Florida.

Historical facts

  • Since 1988, an average of eight measures have appeared annually on the ballot in Florida. Therefore, 2014 is a below average year based on the currently certified measures.
  • The number of measures on a state-wide ballot since 1988 have ranged from 3 to 13.
  • Since 1988, 80 of 102 or 78.43% of Florida ballot measures have been approved by voters.
  • Conversely, 22 of 102 or 21.57% of measures have been defeated.
  • In 2006, a measure was approved that increased the number of votes required to approve a proposed constitutional amendment to 60%. Since 2008, two measures were approved by simple majority, but failed to meet the supermajority requirement and thus were defeated.
