Four measures, all referred to the ballot by the Nevada State Legislature, have been approved for the November 2, 2010 statewide ballot in Nevada.[1]

Eleven initiatives sponsored by citizens were put forward, but none of them submitted signatures by either of Nevada's two petition drive deadlines for the 2010 ballot. The signature filing deadline for initiated state statutes was thirty (30) days prior to the start of the 2010 state legislative session. The signature-filing deadline for initiated constitutional amendments was June 15.[2]
