For general background on Ballotpedia category tags, see Help:Categories.

The Ballotpedia article List of ballot measures by topic describes the different topic or subject areas into which Ballotpedia has determined most American ballot measures can be categorized. Some of the topics have subtopics. For example, Category:Tobacco has Category:Smoking bans as a subtopic. Subtopics will eventually be expanded to help break down topics for in depth analysis.

Each topic and subtopic has a corresponding Ballotpedia article that lists the measures that fall under that topic description. For example, see Hunting on the ballot. Categories and lists are two different ways of doing the same thing. The objective is to make it easy for your reader to find other, similar, content. Lists and category tags also enable the reader to gain a broader picture of the scope of ballot initiative topics.

Many ballot initiatives fall into more than one topic or subtopic category. For example:
