Proposed - initiative activity

NOTE: Proposed citizen initiatives and certified initiatives are listed in the chart below. The chart highlights the number of citizen proposed initiatives that circulated petitions but missed the deadline or state petition requirements; if any proposals faced legal challenges; if no petition activity was reported by the state or media; if proposals were withdrawn or if initiative efforts were redirected toward future ballots. Finally, the chart reveals the total number of initiatives that were certified to ballots in 2011.

Each column total should be individually compared to the total number of initiatives proposed and the number of initiatives certified due to the above stated reasons.

  3. Initiatives in this category faced legal challenges during circulation or at the time of petition filings. This category does not include legal challenges filed after certification.
  4. Some states allow for a rolling petition deadline which allows for initiatives filed in 2011 to redirect efforts to qualify for the 2012 or future ballot.
  5. This means that the initiative was filed with the Secretary of State or Attorney General, but was rejected for circulation.
  6. This means that the Attorney General or Secretary of State's website has not listed the reason for rejection of ballot access, therefore an accurate assessment cannot be made.
