Ballot issue #1 – 30 word limit

Medicine Wheel Trail Advocates’ Board of Directors has passed a resolution in support of the Colorado Springs April 2021 city ballot issue #1.

Ballot issue #1 removes the 30 word limit on ballot issues related to tax or debt, putting our regulations in line with the rest of the state. MWTA agrees that the 30 word limit restricts the transparency and clarity around ballot issues, reducing voter’s ability to understand and assess them. 

This change does not reduce TABOR protections for voters, but it does ensure that future ballot measures can be evaluated with the benefit of background information about them.
