List of ballot measures by topic

NOTE: Only measures with campaign contributions for 2011 ballots were included in the chart below. However, due to the fact that some measures fell into more than one category, some totals may include measures featured under other categories.

The chart below features the contribution totals as of December 2011. Totals are rounded to the nearest dollar. Unlike Ballotpedia's pre-election campaign contribution report, this section will only count measures who had contributions donated to campaigns. The count will add up to 16, since a measure was categorized under two different political topics.
