Oklahoma 2014 ballot measures
The 2014 legislative session began on February 3, 2014, and concluded on May 23, 2014. Three legislatively-referred constitutional amendments are slated to appear on the November ballot, addressing the administration of government, taxes and veterans. At least five other potential legislatively-referred constitutional amendments failed to make the ballot.
Two initiated constitutional amendments may appear on the November 4, 2014 ballot, if supporters submit the required 155,216 valid signatures by the September 5, 2014 deadline. Oklahoma has the latest petition signature filing deadline of any state for the 2014 election cycle.

- Since 1990, 61 of 76, or 80 percent, of Oklahoma ballot measures have been approved by voters.
