Campaign contributions were taken into account when putting together Ballotpedia's 2010 ballot measure analysis, as campaign contributions for each ballot measure that appeared on a 2010 ballot was examined. Total contributions were calculated for: each state with ballot measures, supporting and opposing ballot measure campaigns in each state, each individual ballot measure on the ballot, and political issues. Ballot measures were also ranked from highest to lowest contribution total. However, measures that had no contributions were excluded from the rankings.
