From paid family and medical leave to fees to property taxes, this November Colorado voters will face 10 different questions on their 2020 election ballot. Unfortunately wading through the ballot language of these measures does not always provide clear choices. Political ads and campaign rhetoric make casting a vote even more daunting. The 2020 Common Sense Institute Ballot Guide outlines the facts and provides an objective analysis of the economic impacts – without the spin. Based on economic models and comprehensive fiscal analysis, each issue is presented in a clear and concise manner that gives voters the information they need to make educated and informed decisions on each question.

August 3rd was the final day for citizen-initiated petition campaigns to submit the required 124,632 valid signatures to qualify for the November ballot. While a handful of questions have already been certified, there are still a few hanging in the balance.

Of note, the Colorado Legislature has referred three questions onto the 2020 general election ballot via two-thirds support from the house and senate, one of which is now a veto referred measure.
