Coloradans veto all three statewide measures
The 2021 ballot gave Colorado residents choices on the policy direction of the state — and voters chose to stay the current course, early election results show.
The big picture: Three statewide ballot questions, all pushed by conservatives, failed Tuesday.
How they voted:
- Amendment 78: Failed 44% to 56%. Lawmakers will not be required to vote on how to allocate dollars received by the state. The measure needed 55% to win.
- Proposition 119: Failed 46% to 54%. Marijuana taxes will not be increased, nor will public school dollars be diverted to create a new state agency and fund private tutoring for some students.
- Proposition 120: Failed 43% to 57%. Multifamily and lodging property taxes will not be reduced.
