A Colorado Probate Ward Bill of Rights Initiative did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in Colorado as an initiated state statute. The measure sought to provide a statutory process by which people could be declared incompetent to handle their financial affairs, a process for such persons to be provided with legal representation for any probate proceedings and guidelines for representation by an appointed legal representative and judicial conduct.[1][2]
