One ballot measure was certified for the November 4, 2014, ballot in the state of Idaho. The one measure was defeated.

The 2014 legislative session began on January 6, 2014, and ended on March 21, 2014. During that time, one legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, addressing legislative delegation of rulemaking, was sent to the ballot and defeated by voters.

Two initiated state statutes were proposed but did not make the November ballot. Supporters needed to collect at least 53,751 valid signatures by the May 1, 2014, filing deadline in order to land the initiatives on the ballot.
