HCR18-1001 - Judicial Retention Ballot Format

Passed/Signed into Law
Submitting to the registered electors of the state of Colorado an amendment to the Colorado constitution concerning a change in the format of the election ballot for judicial retention elections.

Under the current language in the constitution, county clerks are required to write a separate retention question for each justice or judge standing for retention. The proposed referendum would allow county clerks to write a single ballot question for each level of courts, shortening and simplifying the ballot.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this concurrent resolution as introduced in the second house.)
