After a statewide ballot measure to raise money for schools failed, some critics said Coloradans prefer to raise taxes locally. But a review of elections in school districts that tried to raise local property taxes shows those weren’t popular either.
There’s a lot of talk this election about how Coloradans are voting. Not what measures they’re voting for, but what method they’re using to do it. That’s because a sweeping overhaul of the state’s election law is just going into effect. And so far it’s getting a mixed reception.
