Three ballot measures are certified for the November 4, 2014 ballot in the state of Missouri.

All three measures are legislatively-referred constitutional amendments. Together they address agriculture, criminal trials and firearms. The 2014 legislative session began on January 8, 2014 and is expected to conclude on May 30, 2014. Proposed amendments must be agreed to by a majority of the members of each chamber of the Missouri General Assembly in order to be placed on the ballot. At least four other measures - two initiated constitutional amendments and two legislatively-referred constitutional amendments - have the potential to make the November general election ballot. In order to land initiatives on the ballot, supporters were required to collect the mandated number of signatures and submit them by the prescribed deadline. The supporting groups had until May 4, 2014 to turn in the required amount of valid signatures to the Missouri Secretary of State's office.

Missouri law states that signatures must be obtained from registered voters equal to eight percent of the total votes cast in the 2012 governor's election from six of the state's eight congressional districts, meaning supporters had to submit at least 157,788 valid signatures by the May deadline. Missouri law states that signatures for initiated state statutes must be obtained from registered voters equal to five percent of the total votes cast in the 2012 governor's election from six of the state's eight congressional districts. This amounts to a minimum of 98,618 valid signatures, depending on which districts signatures are gathered from.
