Statewide Propositions and Ballot Measures
There are two ways a measure can be placed on the ballot.
1. The Legislature has the ability to place constitutional amendments, bond measures, and proposed changes in law on the ballot.
2. Any California voter can put an initiative or a referendum on the ballot by following the "How to Qualify an Initiative" process.
A statewide ballot measure can be approved by a majority vote of the people. Certain local ballot measures require approval by a 55% or two-thirds vote of the electorate. For more information regarding California Ballot Measures, please click here.
