Thanks to Ballotpedia we have the final count for statewide ballot measures this year–148. Just 35–a near record low–of these ballot measures are citizen-proposed.
- The last time the total number of statewide measures fell below 150 was 1986. In 2012, voters saw 188 statewide ballot questions.
- 136 of this year’s statewide ballot measures will appear on the November 4 general election ballot. Twelve measures were voted on in primary elections.
- Though 616 citizen-proposed initiatives were filed, only 35 (6% of those filed) will go before voters.
- In California, 2014 marks the lowest number of ballot propositions (6) ever to appear on a general election ballot since the initiative and referendum process was enacted in the state in 1911.
