Wisconsin 2014 ballot measures
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.
- Since 1989, an average of two measures have appeared annually on the ballot in Wisconsin. Therefore, 2014 is a below-average year, based on the number of certified measures.
- There have been no measures on the ballot in Wisconsin since 2008.
- The number of measures on statewide ballots since 1989 has ranged from one to seven.
- Since 1989, 18 of 28, or 64.29 percent, of Wisconsin ballot measures have been approved by voters.
