The Colorado House of Representatives has been a term-limited state house since Colorado voters approved Issue 5 in 1990. The affirmative vote by Colorado's electorate in Issue 5 altered Section 3 of Article V on the Colorado Constitution to say that Colorado State Representatives could serve no more than four 2-year terms in office.

There are 65 representatives in the Colorado house. 8 of them, or 12.31%, couldn't run in 2012 because of term limits. Of these 8, 4 were Democratic and 4 were Republican

In addition to the 8 Colorado state representatives who left office because of term limits, 6 Colorado state senators were also termed-out.

Colorado state representatives whose seats were up for election in 2012 but who were unable to run because of the state's term limits were:

Democrats (4):

Republicans (4):

Impact of redistricting

See also: Redistricting in Colorado

The Colorado Reapportionment Commission is responsible for reapportioning state legislative districts. It is made up of 11 members chosen by the three branches of government as follows: 4 by the Colorado General Assembly, 3 by the Governor and 4 by the Colorado Supreme Court Chief Justice. Colorado's population grew by 17% between 2000 and 2010, with Hispanics being a major driver. The new population total put the ideal House district population at 77,372.[3]

After reviewing maps proposed by Republicans and Democrats, Commission Chairman Mario Carrera, the only unaffiliated member, announced he would submit his own, consolidating concerns from both parties while focusing on competitiveness. The commission voted to pass his maps on September 19, but the Colorado Supreme Court rejected the new maps by a vote of 4-2, stating they were not "sufficiently attentive to county boundaries."[4]

Sent back to the Commission, they voted to pass Democratic-drawn proposals. Republicans criticized the new proposals for forcing a number of GOP incumbents into the same districts, while Democrats said it was an unfortunate outcome of trying to minimize county splits. The new House map, which was then approved by the Court, included 24 seats considered to be competitive.[5]

Primary lawsuit

Former state House candidate Lu Ann Busse filed a lawsuit asking a judge to void the result of her primary election because ballots were traceable and voting machines weren't properly secured. These issues could cause problems for the November general election if changes are not made.[6]

The lawsuit accused Secretary of State Scott Gessler and election clerks of "major violations of duty" and conducting elections that didn't comply with state statutes or the Colorado Constitution. [6]

Ballots in Douglas County included unique barcodes and numbers which could be used to track the ballot to the person who cast the vote, according to the lawsuit. This is a violation of the Colorado Constitution, which states that ballots shall not be marked in a way that allows them to be traced to the voter. A 1964 Colorado Supreme Court ruling also states that the use of marked ballots, or ballots numbered in a way that they can be tracked, should result in a void election.[6]

Security lapses also occurred in Teller County, where Gessler's office stated that the county "is not prepared to properly administer elections." The following were among given concerns: electronic voting machines that weren't functioning properly, election judges who weren't trained on how to use the machines, and machines that were missing the tamper-proof seals required under Colorado election rules.[6]
