DENVER, Colorado: Polls have opened in Colorado, as the state's general election begin today, November 1, exactly one week before other states' odd-year elections.

As previously reported, voters will have a chance to vote on Proposition 103, the measure that would 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.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. MST, where results will be posted on Ballotpedia as numbers begin to roll in to the Colorado Secretary of State's office.
