California 2010 ballot propositions

The deadline for ballot initiatives for the California 2010 ballot has passed. However, the state legislature still may refer propositions to the November 2, 2010 ballot.

Dozens of initiatives whose sponsors filed their measures with election officials in early 2010 did not qualify for the November 2, 2010 ballot but might still qualify for a statewide election in 2012.

This is because when a proposed initiative is given its official ballot title and summary, it is also given a 150-day window for collection of signatures. If initiative sponsors collect sufficient signatures within their 150-day window and turn them in too late to qualify for the November 2010 bllot, their initiative will go on the ballot in a future year.
