Three statewide ballot questions were on the November 2, 2010 ballot in the state of Maryland.
- Two measures were legislatively-referred constitutional amendments.
- One measure was an automatic ballot referral about a potential constitutional convention that appears on the ballot every 20 years in the state.
- The Maryland Legislature adjourned on April 12, 2010, solidifying the state ballot measure count for 2010.

Local ballot measures
- For Question 1 to be approved, it requires a double majority, or the approval of all of those who voted in the election (not just those who voted on Question 1). As of mid-day on November 5, the final tally of how many total ballots were cast on November 2 has not been announced. It is therefore not possible to determine conclusively at this time whether Question 1 was approved or defeated.
