The Colorado Recall of State and Local Officers Amendment did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in Colorado as an initiated constitutional amendment. The measure would have defined which officers were eligible for recall, including certain non-elective officers. It would have provided procedures and requirements to initiate, conduct, protest and enforce recall elections. It would have changed the number of signatures required to initiate a recall. Additionally, it would have prohibited any officer who was recalled, resigned or removed during the recall process from serving in certain offices for four years. It would have also limited the application of certain campaign finance requirements to recalls.[1][2]

The measure would have repealed and replaced Article XXI of the Colorado Constitution.

Text of measure

The Ballot Title Setting Board set the title for this measure on April 2, 2014, but the proponents appealed that ruling to the Colorado Supreme Court.[3] However, the Supreme Court denied the title setting on the grounds of the measure not constituting a single subject.[1]
