Five statewide ballot measures have thus far been certified for spots on four statewide ballots for 2015.

If this year is similar to previous odd-numbered years (such as 2013, 2011, 2009 and 2007), it will feature roughly three dozen statewide ballot questions in a handful of states.

The states that nearly always have statewide ballot measures on their odd-year ballots are Texas, New Jersey and the State of Washington. Other states that show up with statewide measures in odd-numbered years with some frequency are Colorado, Maine and New York. Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Wisconsin, Ohio and Utah also show up in odd-numbered years from time-to-time.
