MONTGOMERY, Alabama: Alabama's ballot measure count is not yet finalized, according to the Alabama Secretary of State's office, but that will change as early as next week. There are numerous ballot measures proposed for the November 2, 2010 ballot as of August 2010, however, some of those will be local measures, and some will be state measures.[1]

On August 11, 2010 a Constitutional Amendment Committee will meet to sort out those measures, deciding which ones will appear locally and which ones will appear on the statewide ballot, according to the Alabama Secretary of State's office. The reason being is that in order to pass local county laws, an amendment to the state constitution is needed. Alabama mandates that county governments seek legislative approval or legislatively-referred constitutional amendment ballot measures for approval of laws.
