|List of measures|
- Initiated state statutes, which earn a spot on the ballot when sponsors collect signatures according to the laws governing the initiative process in Alaska. In Alaska, all initiatives are indirect.
- Legislatively-referred constitutional amendments. These are voted onto the ballot when both houses of the Alaska State Legislature agree to put them on the ballot by a 2/3rds vote.
- Bonding propositions placed on the ballot by the state legislature. The first such measures were on the 1960 ballot. 88 bonding propositions were on Alaska statewide ballots between 1960 and 1984.
- Veto referenda. When citizens of Alaska disagree with a statute or legislative bill enacted by the state legislature, they can collect signatures to force the issue to a vote. If enough signatures are collected, the bill is placed on the statewide ballot. If voters vote "yes", they are agreeing with the bill enacted by the legislature.
- Automatic ballot referrals. In Alaska, there is one such question, by law, every ten years--the question of whether to hold a constitutional convention.
- Advisory questions. The state legislature is allowed to put statewide advisory-only votes on the ballot; often, these advisory votes ask whether the citizenry would like to see a proposed constitutional amendment on the ballot in a future year.
