Two statewide ballot measures are on the November 4, 2014 ballot in the state of Georgia. An additional four party-specific advisory questions were on the Democratic Party primary ballot on May 20, 2014.

The 2014 legislative session began on January 13, 2014 and concluded on March 21, 2014. The state does not allow initiatives or referendums, therefore, measures must be referred by the Georgia Legislature. The legislature referred one legislatively-referred constitutional amendment and one legislatively-referred state statute, both of which address taxes.

Historical facts
