Here's a new addition to Governing's ballot measure guide.

Budget

State: Massachusetts

Issue: Question 1, which would eliminate the state income tax.

Analysis: Income taxes account for 40% of Massachusetts' budget, so, if this measure passes, it will have a massive impact on government in the state. A former libertarian candidate for governor is teaming up with other anti-tax activists to push the measure, which is opposed by most of the state's leading elected officials, unions and even the Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation.
