Coloradans get to vote this November on whether to raise the state’s minimum wage, adopt a public healthcare system and let terminal adults buy medication to end their own lives.
That would be a lot to consider on its own, but there are actually nine statewide ballot questions this year.
Our one-hour ballot question debate special (above) gives you a chance to hear from both sides and make better informed decisions when you fill out your ballot.
And you can read more about each of these initiatives and amendments from the nonpartisan staff at the Colorado
Legislative Council. The agency produces the official blue book voter guide.
The hour-long debate special was condensed for time.
