Before you vote on those Colorado ballot issues

(’76 Editor) Coloradans will begin voting by mail in mid-October, and a month from now the election will be over. In addition to candidate races for local, state, and federal offices, there is a typically crowded ballot for statutes and constitutional amendments to enacted or turned down by “we the people.” The official state voter guide, or Colorado Bluebook, prepared according to law by nonpartisan legislative staff under the supervision of a state House and Senate committee, is online here. The Bluebook provides full text of each proposal and a layman’s explanation of what it does, along with arguments for and against each measure.
