Just in case this is important:

A ballot is something which lists things to vote on.  A ballot can be
blank (no voter preferences) or it can represent the preferences of
a voter.

In parliamentary terms, a measure is "a statute in draft before it
becomes law".  A measure might be one of the options on a ballot, but
you can other things (for example: you can vote about people).
