One ballot measure has been certified for the 2014 ballot in the state of South Carolina.

The one measure is a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment and addresses elections.

In addition, party-specific advisory questions will appear on the Democratic Party and Republican Party primary ballots. The topics range from marijuana and gambling on the Democratic ballot to abortion and taxes on the Republican ballot.

South Carolina's 2014 legislative session began on January 14, 2014 and is projected to end on June 30, 2014. Proposed amendments must be approved by a two-thirds vote in both chambers of the South Carolina Legislature to be placed on the ballot. Currently, two legislatively-referred constitutional amendments have been proposed for the ballot. The potential measures are related to marriage and elections.

South Carolina does not have an initiative and referendum process.
