List proposals here!

Since it is already there and it seems like a reasonable idea. This could also be potentially be a subcategory of "administration of government". User:JWilliams

Considered: requires further discussion


Considered: to be created


Considered: created

* Act of dueling

Wisconsin Dueling and Disenfranchisement Amendment, Question 4 (April 1975) - I think we will find more ballot questions relating to the legality of dueling as we go back in history. User:JWilliams
If this is to be implemented a different category name may be required. On our law pages we often refer to "dueling measures" which some may confusing with measures about dueling. BaileyL 13:33, 30 December 2011 (CST)

* Economic development

Rhode Island Question 4, Quonset Point/Davisville Bonds (2002) (Do you mean economic development as in "ballot measures that are designed to try to promote or sustain some level of economic activity, new jobs, etc.? If so, there are other bond measures like that, for example, Maine Job Creation Bond Act, Question 6 (1996), so that could be a good category. Leslie Graves) (Yep, that's what I had in mind. Saw a number of these in RI. - User:TylerM)

* History, Culture, and the Arts

Rhode Island Heritage Harbor Museum Bonds, Question 5 (2000) (We should have a category like this, because there are multiple such ballot measures. Leslie Graves)

* Nuclear issues Change Nuclear weapons/facilities/waste on the ballot to "Nuclear issues on the ballot" User:JWilliams

* Recall measures

New Jersey Right of Recall, Public Question 1 (1993)User:JWilliams
We currently have a category called "recall measures." You can find that here. (needs to be added to the list of topics) Is this what you were looking for? BaileyL 12:10, 30 December 2011 (CST)

* State executive officers measures

New Jersey Lieutenant Governor Amendment, Question 1 (2005) User:JWilliams

* Statehood

Wisconsin Repeal of Obsolete Provisions Relating to Transition to Statehood Amendment, Question 7 (1982) As we dig back into history, we might find more amendments from states relating to their statehood. User:JWilliams

Considered: no further action needed

  • State legislatures measures
None of the others have "measures" in the category. Seems redundant.
  • Actually, there is "Direct democracy measures" and "Redistricting measures". More importantly, while I agree it sounds awkward, I think it was originally created to differentiate the ballot measures regarding state legislatures from the State legislature project. User:JWilliams
  • Good point, should probably stay. User:TylerM


Ballot measure deletions

I have deleted all of the ballot measures contained within these lists that are "Page does not exist" status and I've deleted the ballot measures that do not contain an outcome of the election. If one would like to put the ballot measure back on the list, please create the article for the measure and/or update the outcome of the election status.--Johnwynnejr 13:46, 5 February 2010 (CST)

This logo needs to be changed


This logo needs to be changed to a blue symbol and an orange "ISSUES" and be in the same format as "BALLOTPEDIA" is written here. I'll work it.

I don't believe that the {|bmblists}} should be to the right of the boxes of lists. Although I do believe {{bmlists}} or its contents should be at the bottom of the article.--Johnwynnejr 08:44, 8 September 2010 (CDT)
