While presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump dominate the election coverage, from Baldwin County, Alabama, to Los Angeles County, California, at least 57 transportation-related initiatives will appear on state and local ballots Nov. 8. In the 2012 presidential election, 31 measures went before the voters, 21 of which were approved.

Indicators point to public support to spend money on transportation and infrastructure: 98 percent of the 671 legislators in eight states that passed fuel tax hikes in 2015 who voted in favor of fuel tax hikes won their primary races this year.

Transport Topics highlights major transportation initiatives facing voters in California, Nevada, Alabama, Illinois and New Jersey.
