It's a new month and a new ballot measure count according to Ballotpedia's Tuesday Count. This past week Washington joined 27 other states with measures on the 2010 ballot. Additionally, two measures were approved for the ballot in Oregon and one in South Dakota; bringing the total count to 74. According to the Ballot Measure Scorecard five measures remain pending signature verification. The next petition drive deadline is March 10, 2010 in North Dakota for the June 8, 2010 statewide ballot.

In Mississippi measures are already being reviewed for the 2011 statewide ballot. This week the secretary of state approved the proposed Voter Identification Initiative for the November 8, 2011 statewide election. The measure, if approved by voters, would require Voter ID at election polls.

Recently approved measures include:
May 18 ballot

  • Oregon Measure 69 - authorizes the state to incur indebtedness for the benefit of higher education

November 2 ballot
