The goal of the Ballot Measures project on Ballotpedia is to provide readers thorough, nonpartisan coverage of current and past measures. The State Ballots project covers current and upcoming statewide ballots. The Local Ballots project covers local elections in California, local pension reform measures in all 50 states, as well as notable measures in various states. The Historical Ballots project explores statewide ballot measures dating back to 1900. The Recall project details current and past local recalls.
