One statewide ballot measure is on the November 4, 2014 ballot in the state of Mississippi.

The 2014 legislative session began on January 7, 2014 and concluded on April 3, 2014. During that time, lawmakers placed one legislatively-referred constitutional amendment, which addresses hunting and fishing, on the November ballot. For all initiatives, petitions must be filed with the Secretary of State not less than ninety (90) days before the first day of the regular session of the Legislature at which it is to be submitted.[1] The required number of signatures for amendments, initiatives and veto referendums is 107,216.

A total of six potential filed initiatives are still valid to be considered for the ballot because their status has not expired. However, these initiatives have been active since as early as 2009, and therefore, there is no guarantee that they will appear on this year's ballot.
