Ballotpedia says we may be number one

Posted by Richard on August 8, 2008

It looks like Colorado may lead the nation with the most initiatives and referenda on the ballot this fall. With the August 4 deadline for submitting petitions passed, we have 4 initiatives already certified for the ballot and 15 more that have turned in signatures. If all the pending ones are certified, the total of 19 will be the most since 1912. In addition, there are 4 measures referred to the citizens by the legislature. 

California, always a hotbed of ballot proposition activity and usually the leader, has 12 measures on the ballot, but no more pending.

I learned this at Ballotpedia, your one-stop source of information about ballot initiatives, petition drives, recall elections, ballot access, school bond elections, and related matters. Ballotpedia is sponsored by the Sam Adams Alliance. It features breaking ballot news, related legal news, state-by-state information on past, current, and future ballot issues, and a ton of other tools and resources related to "citizen-powered democracy." If you're at all a political junkie, you've got to bookmark Ballotpedia.

Ballotpedia is a wiki (in fact, it uses the same MediaWiki software that powers Wikipedia), so registered users can add or edit information. Got interesting info about a local ballot issue or related matter? Sign up and share it! See a goof or error you think should be corrected? Well, you can! (I'm going to resist my urge to compulsively fix typos, correct grammar, change punctuation, …)

You'll find all the Colorado news and information here. Or go here for links to all state portal pages. Thanks to the Sam Adams Alliance for sponsoring this great resource!
