DENVER, Colorado: The proposed Colorado "personhood" amendment will not appear on the ballot after supporters fell short of the signature requirement.

According to the Colorado Secretary of State's office, signatures fell about 3,900 short of the more than 86,000 signatures needed.

The measure would define the term "person" in the state constitution as the start of biological development. On August 6, the Colorado Personhood Coalition submitted 112,121 signatures to the Colorado Secretary of State.[1]
