One ballot measure is currently certified for the November 4, 2014 ballot in Wisconsin. The legislatively-referred constitutional amendment addresses government finances.

The 2014 legislative session began on January 14, 2014, and is expected to conclude on December 1, 2014. The state does not allow initiatives or referendums, therefore, measures must be referred by the Wisconsin Legislature. A simple majority vote is required in two successive sessions of the legislature to put an amendment before voters.
