Sixty-eight (68) citizen-initiated measures made the ballot in 2018. Four have already been decided, while the remaining 64 will appear in Tuesday's general election.

A Ballotpedia analysis found that getting these measures on the ballot required a combined total of 11,110,180 valid signatures from registered voters. Gathering those signatures cost at least $74 million.

Eleven of the initiatives are about tax issues, 11 more are about election topics (including redistricting), seven deal with marijuana, and six deal with healthcare.

Geographically, eight citizen-driven initiatives made the ballot in California, seven in Colorado, six in Missouri, and five in Oregon.
