Southern Colorado voters will have some big issues to vote on this November.
After surveying more than 250 Coloradans throughout the state this summer about what issues they care about, we aimed our focus on housing, public safety, the economy and more.
From a tax extension to fund transportation projects to two marijuana measures that could make it legal to buy recreationally in Colorado Springs, here’s your guide to voting in the 2022 general election.
