KUSA - Coloradans voted on questions about marijuana, fracking, and taxes at municipalities across the state on Election Day.

The two statewide questions were tax related and either passed or failed by large margins. Voters rejected Amendment 66 and passed proposition AA.

Amendment 66 fails
Amendment 66 would have created wholesale changes for how Colorado funds public education - from expanded preschool to more money for K-12 schools with high numbers of at-risk students.

Proposition AA passes
Proposition AA implements a 15 percent pot excise tax plus a 10 percent sales tax. The taxes are estimated to bring in $70 million a year.

51st State: 6 Colorado counties vote 'No'
At least six of 11 rural Colorado counties were voting against a symbolic effort to form a 51st state called North Colorado.

Fracking moratorium passing in most counties
Opponents of a Fort Collins fracking moratorium are accepting defeat after results showed voters approving the five-year hiatus.

Conservative school reform votes still being counted in DougCo
The Douglas County school board race was not only a big race in the state but in the country.

Telluride rejects tax on sugary drinks
Voters in the mountain resort town of Telluride decided against a new tax on sugary drinks Tuesday.
