List of Colorado ballot measures

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The following is a list of statewide initiatives and referenda modifying state law and proposing state constitutional amendments in Colorado, sorted by election. The Colorado Legislative Council, an organ of the Colorado General Assembly, maintains a comprehensive list at its website.

Measures submitted to popular vote may be classified as follows:

Referenda are amendments to state statutes or the state constitution proposed by a two-thirds vote of both houses of the Colorado General Assembly and must be approved by a simple majority of voters at the next general election.[1] Such referred measures are designated by letter.

Initiatives (also referred to simply as Amendments) are amendments to the state statutes or to the state constitution proposed via petition by citizens, and must be signed by a number of registered voters equal to at least 5% of the total number of votes cast for all candidates for the office of secretary of state at the previous general election. Upon acceptance, the initiative is voted upon during the next statewide general election.[1] Amendments are designated by number. The number assigned to a measure when petitions are circulating is generally different from the number ultimately assigned to an initiative when it is placed upon the ballot.

There is no difference in Colorado, as of July 16, 2008, between the requirements for placing a statutory change, and a state constitutional change on the ballot, or approving such a change. Colorado Referendum O facing voters in November 2008 would change these requirements by requiring more support at the petition stage to amend the state constitution than to amend a state statute.

Colorado voters may also present petitions forcing votes on the repeal of laws enacted by the state legislature without a "safety clause," and may force a public vote on the recall of an elected official. Neither type of ballot issue has been presented to Colorado voters at a statewide level in recent history.

  • Amendment 69 Failed: Colorado Care
  • Amendment 70 Passed: Raising the minimum wage to $12 by 2020
  • The Colorado $12 Minimum Wage Amendment, also known as Amendment 70, was on the November 8, 2016, ballot in Colorado as an initiated constitutional amendment... It was approved. [2] This means that beginning in 2017, the minimum wage would be raised to $9.30 an hour and will increase incrementally by 90 cents each year until it reaches $12.00 an hour in 2020. Although there is a state regulated minimum wage, this does not apply to every citizen who is employed in the state. Minors under the age of 18 may be paid up to 15% less than the current Colorado minimum wage… Full-time high school or college students who work part-time may be paid 85% of the Colorado minimum wage (as little as $9.44 per hour) for up to 20 hours of work per week at certain employers (such as work-study programs at universities). [3] The question to ask is can Coloradans live a comfortable life off of minimum wage? Since the minimum wage increase, housing in Colorado has risen exponentially. Inflation is occurring and it surpassing the rise of minimum wage. Many individuals who are making above minimum wage are not seeing an increase in wages, which puts a financial strain on them while inflation is occurring.
