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