Liberal Issues Figure Prominently On State’s November Ballots

 Left-leaning issues are among the most common subjects for state ballot measures this year. Voters in five states will consider whether to legalize marijuana for recreational use, and voters in four states will weigh medical marijuana measures. Four states’ ballots include measures aimed at increasing the minimum wage, while the ballot in a fifth, South Dakota, includes a referendum on a minimum wage bill enacted last year. Voters in four states will also consider gun control measures. The majority of the 12 combined states considering one or more of the three issues are governed by Republicans.
