Four statewide measures are certified for 2014 ballots in the state of Alabama, including one legislatively-referred constitutional amendment on the July 15, 2014 primary ballot and three on the November 4, 2014 general election ballot.

The state does not allow initiatives or referendums, therefore, all measures are referred by the Alabama Legislature. The 2014 regular legislative session began on January 14, 2014 and convened on April 3, 2014.[1] In 2014, voters will decide on a variety of issues, including:
