Zero ballot measures are certified for the 2014 ballot in the state of Virginia.

Virginia's 2014 legislative session began on January 8, 2014, and ended March 10, 2014. The Virginia Legislature did not place any referred measures 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.

Historical facts

  • Since 1996, 23 of 26, or 88.46 percent, of Virginia ballot measures have been approved by voters.
