Five statewide ballot questions were approved for both the 2010 primary and general election ballots in the state of Alabama.

  • Some measures were on local county ballots, while the four listed measures for the general election were on the statewide ballot. The reason being was that in order to pass local county laws, an amendment to the state constitution was needed. Alabama mandates that county governments seek legislative approval or legislatively-referred constitutional amendment ballot measures for approval of laws. A constitutional amendment committee decided in late August 2010 which amendments would appear on county ballots and which would appear on the statewide ballot
