Two ballot measures are certified for the 2014 ballot in the state of Illinois.

Supporters are currently circulating petitions for the Illinois Independent Redistricting measure and the Term Limits for Legislators measure, both initiated constitutional amendments. If one or both of these measures make it to the ballot, it will be the first time Illinois residents have voted on a binding initiative since 1980.
