A Colorado State Representative Districts Amendment did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in Colorado as an initiated constitutional amendment. The measure would have made the state representative districts each consist of one county. It would have taken effect January 10, 2017. The title given to this measure by the Ballot Title Setting Board was, "An amendment to the Colorado constitution establishing the boundaries of each district for the state house of representatives as coinciding with the boundaries of a single county in the state." The measure was also known as the Phillips County Plan.[1][2][3]

The measure would have amended Section 45 of Article V of the Colorado Constitution.

Supporters were required to gather 86,105 valid signatures by Monday, August 4 at 3:00 PM for the measure to appear on the ballot. In early July 2014, leaders of the initiative effort decided to end their campaign for the 2014 ballot. They concluded they would not have enough time or resources to gather the required signatures by the deadline. Kinnie and Schafer said the group will try again for a 2016 ballot placement.[5]
