Seven measures have been certified for the 2010 ballot in Colorado. Three of the certified measures are initiated constitutional amendments, while one is a initiated state statutes. Three were legislatively-referred.

The signature filing deadline for the 2010 ballot in Colorado is not clear-cut. A statute passed in 2009 says the deadline is July 12, but some sources say that this statute conflicts with the Colorado Constitution and that the deadline is actually therefore August 2. At least one initiative sponsor has received a letter from the Colorado Secretary of State putting the deadline on August 2.[1]

Currently approximately 98 ballot initiatives have been proposed for the 2010 ballot in Colorado. Eleven of the proposed initiatives have already been withdrawn or have expired.
