One ballot measure is certified for the 2014 ballot in the state of Virginia.

Virginia's 2014 legislative session began on January 8 and ended March 10, 2014. The Virginia Legislature placed one legislatively-referred constitutional amendment addressing taxes on the ballot. One advisory question was proposed and would have been, upon legislative certification, the first advisory question on the ballot since 1914.[1]

Virginia does not have an initiative and referendum process.
