Ballot Measures Chart

Over the past four decades, Nielsen Merksamer has been legal counsel for either the opponents or proponents of nearly four hundred ballot measures, including most major California statewide initiative or referenda, along with scores of local ballot measures. We advise our ballot measure clients on all aspects of campaigning, from initiative drafting and filing, contesting ballot language and other pre-election litigation, observing and potentially contesting the final vote, and post-election substantive challenges.
