Tomorrow is National Voter Registration Day. If you’re not already registered, you can head to Go Vote Colorado and fill out the forms.
The Nov. 2 election will see local school district races and a proposed amendment (78) to the state constitution that would transfer the authority to appropriate state revenue that isn’t generated from taxes (custodial funds). The amendment would also create the Custodial Fund Transparency Account and require the Legislature to appropriate funds for their legal purpose equitably, and for the benefit of the state. Appropriations would take place after public hearings.
Also on the ballot is Proposition 119, which would increase taxes on retail marijuana sales, and Proposition 120, which would reduce commercial and residential property taxes. However, Prop. 120 also was undercut by SB-21-293, which changed the types of tax categories, so it's unclear whether the proposition would have its desired effect.
Ballots start hitting the mail Oct. 12 — 15 and will be mailed to all active, registered voters.
Are you registered to vote? Do you have any early thoughts on the proposed amendments?
