BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin has announced the order of questions on the November ballot.

Galvin announced at the Statehouse on Thursday that a question to repeal a new law linking future hikes in the gas tax to the rate of inflation would be Question 1.

A law to expand the bottle deposit law to include sports drinks and some other beverages has been designated Question 2.

The question that could repeal the state’s casino gambling law is Question 3.

A question that mandates earned sick time for Massachusetts workers was designated Question 4.

Wednesday was the last day for supporters to deliver a second batch of more than 11,000 certified voter signatures to his office.

Three other questions have been withdrawn after lawmakers took action on the issues.
