One ballot measure was certified for the 2014 ballot in the state of Virginia where it was approved, thereby creating a property tax exemption for surviving spouses of military personnel killed in action.

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, had it been approved, the first advisory question on the ballot since 1914.[1]

As of 2014, Virginia did not have an initiative and referendum process.
