2022 Coordinated Ballot – Chamber Takes Positions on Local and State Issues
The November 2022 ballot will include 11 state issues that have been cleared by the Office of the Secretary of State. Of that total, three propose changes to the Colorado Constitution which require a 55% approval rate to become law (denoted as “Amendment”). The balance of items propose changes to state statute which require a simple majority. Six items have been placed on the ballot via citizen-initiative and five have been referred by the Colorado Legislature.
In addition to the 11 state issues, the Fort Collins City Council has placed three items on the November 8, 2022 ballot: Moving the municipal election cycle to November of odd-numbered years; Increasing Council compensation; and Ranked Choice Voting. All three issues would change our City Charter.
After in-depth review by staff, the Local Legislative Affairs Committee (LLAC), the Northern Colorado Legislative Alliance (NCLA) and the Board, the Fort Collins Area Chamber has elected to take the following positions on issues:
