a look at the what’s on the ballot


Colorado voters will see eleven statewide questions on the November ballot. We summarize the first six in a recent newsletter and the remaining five, here.   And, here are some good additional resources for more information and analysis:

  • The “Blue Book” – an analysis provided by the legislature of each statewide ballot measure, including a summary, arguments for and against and a brief fiscal assessment. You should have received a copy in the mail; it is also available in Spanish and in an audio version.

  • A summary from Colorado Public Radio – includes links to organizations supporting and opposing each measure. 

  • Colorado Politics article – focuses on the money being spent, and by whom, for and against these measures.

  • Colorado Sun article – provides an overview of all the measures, with links to Colorado Sun articles on many of them. 

  • The Colorado Secretary of State’s website provides the text of each of these bills and measures at this page

  • The Vail Valley Partnership has taken positions on some of the statewide measures, as well as on three Eagle County ballot measures, all of which you can read about here.

  • Progressive Voter's Guide Colorado -- Type in your address here and get recommendations.
