DENVER, Colorado: The November 1 election in the state of Colorado has wrapped up. Polls closed at 7 p.m. MST, and election results began to pour in shortly after.

Stay up to date on Proposition 103 as Ballotpedia will update results here.

Although not all precincts have reported numbers, The Denver Post has declared the measure as being rejected by voters due to a large margin between "yes" and "no" votes as of 8:02 p.m. MST.[1]

Proposition 103 is the only measure on Colorado's ballot this year, and proposes to increase the state income and sales tax. Specifically, it would increase the state income tax to 5 percent and the sales tax to 3 percent. Currently, the income tax is 4.63 percent and the sales tax is 2.9 percent.

The revenue generated from the tax increase would be used to help fund education in the state.

Update: 10,516 precincts reporting (98%)
