One statewide ballot proposition was on the November 4, 2008 ballot in Alaska. This is in addition to the four ballot initiatives that appeared on Alaska's August 26, 2008 statewide primary ballot. Voters ejected all four of those initiatives; all of the them were citizen-initiated indirect state statutes.
