Jennie Bowser of NCSL sums up the major measures here.
I checked that site to see what else was happening on abortion, after we've noted South Dakota rejected an outright ban and California voters appeared sour on parental notification. Looks like parental notification is going down in Oregon, as well.
Oregon voters have also rejected term limits. That might be the last time a state takes up that issue.
Voters are embracing smoking bans, supporting the tougher measure in each of the three states where two different initiatives competed. (The tobacco industry spent major dollars promoting the weaker versions.)
South Dakota voters have rejected a measure that would allow people to sue judges when they're upset about verdicts. Former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor wrote a column criticizing the measure in The Wall Street Journal.
Josh, weren't there a couple of other measures addressing or attacking judicial independence?
