On November 6, voters decided the outcome of 174 ballot measures across the country. And campaigns supporting or opposing these measures spent close to $1 billion just on ballot measures this election cycle.
"Voters made history yesterday," said Justine Sarver, executive director of the Ballot Initiative Strategy Center. "For the first time, ballot measures were used to approve marriage equality, advance the pro-immigrant DREAM Act and repudiate Citizen's United. In Minnesota, voters defeated an insidious voter restriction amendment. These victories represent a historic momentum shift on issues that Americans care about."
