Ballot Access Mississippi
The original ballot initiative and referendum process in Mississippi was established in 1992. Since that time, 76 Mississippi citizens or organizations have attempted to use this constitutionally guaranteed process to place an initiative on the ballot. 68 of these attempts have failed simply due to not surviving the rigorous nature of the process, and 5 of the attempts that survived were voted against. The only 3 initiatives that have survived the original process and been voted in by Mississippians are Voter ID, Eminent Domain, and Medical Marijuana.
