History

Since 2000, Minnesotans have considered only 2 ballot measures. Of these two, all two have passed. Both of these ballot measures focused on tax issues. However, the nineties saw a greater diversity of ballot measures with amendments concerning veterans affairs, state lottery proceeds, and hunter's rights.
