Amendment 65

This measure, as an advisory question, urges the state to support tweaks in state policy on limiting corporate contributions and expenditures in state and national elections. The measure charges state lawmakers with furthering the state's policy on the matter and ask congressional delegates to support efforts to overrule the ‘’Citizens United decision by amending the U.S. Constitution.

Amendment 65 is shown by the Colorado’s Secretary of State's website as decisively approved, 73.81% of electors having voted yes so far, while only 26.19% having voted no. Election results are not yet official, as a canvassing of the results will not be done until later this month.


Amendment S

This measure, legislatively-referred constitutional amendment implements certain testing methods for job applicants, restrict the number of finalists for a particular job or position, place limits on the hiring temporary workers and require that applicants be residents of the state, according to reports.

With 56.26% of electors voting yes so far and only 43.74% voting no, as reported by the Colorado Secretary of State, Amendment S is strongly expected to be approved when the results are finalized.
