Coloradans To Decide Electoral Vote Process On 2020 Ballot

Elise Thatcher

The Elections Division at the Colorado's Secretary of State's office announced Thursday that Coloradans will ultimately decide how the state casts its electoral vote for presidential candidates in 2020. 

The National Popular Vote Referendum on the 2020 ballot will ask Coloradans to pass or veto Senate Bill 42, which was signed into law by Gov. Jared Polis last spring. The bill would give the state's electoral votes to the presidential candidate who wins the national popular vote. 

The referendum petition was submitted on August 1st with over 228,000 signatures. The Secretary of State's office confirmed those signatures Thursday officially placing the question on the November 3rd ballot.
