In Colorado, voters will consider a huge tax hike on newly legal marijuana. New Yorkers could expand gambling. New Jersey wants a minimum wage hike. Texas would tap the state’s rainy day fund for water. And Washington voters are in the midst of a multimillion-dollar campaign over the labeling of genetically modified foods.

Voters in six states will consider a combined 31 ballot questions on Nov. 5, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Many are non-binding advisory votes or relatively minor bonding questions. But in a light year for elections, some have sparked near-record-breaking levels of campaign spending.
