Raising the minimum wage won in all six states where it was on the ballot: Arizona, Colorado, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, Ohio.

Legalization of marijuana lost in Colorado, Nevada, and South Dakota.
Parental notification lost in Oregon and is losing in California. An outright abortion ban lost in South Dakota.
