Potential measuresFiled Initiatives

184 ballot questions were certified for spots on 38 statewide ballots in 2010.[1]

Specifically, for the November 2, 2010 general election ballot 160 ballot questions were certified in 37 states.[2] The 184 measures on the 2010 ballot amounted to about 80% of the average of 220 ballot questions that have been on statewide ballots in the even-numbered years from 1990-2008.

5 political topics dominated the 2010 ballot, and 3 of the 5 most popular topics each related to fiscal policy. The "Big 5" topics on the 2010 ballot were taxes, administration of government, elections and campaigns, bond issues and state budgets. The number of 2010 ballot measures relating to fiscal topics were an increase of about 13% over the number of similar measures on the 2008 ballot.

The 2010 ballot included fewer social issues (such as abortion, marriage, immigration, gambling) than had been the case in most recent years, although one of the most widely-remarked measures on the ballot, California's Proposition 19, is a classic in the genre.

  2. The District of Columbia also had a ballot measure on its November 2 ballot - Washington, D.C. Attorney General Selection (2010). On Ballotpedia, the DC ballot measure is grouped in with local, city-wide ballot measures from cities such as Los Angeles, Houston or Detroit.
