Today on Local Motion, a look back at some local ballot initiatives across our region and the state.

We talked with area reporters and people involved in contested issues this year about the elections, the outcomes, and what the results tell us about the attitude of Colorado voters this year.

Colorado voters gave a mixed reaction Tuesday on a pair of statewide tax increases. Voters didn’t want to tax themselves to pay for education, but were overwhelmingly willing to tax recreational marijuana to help rebuild schools.

Election Day is tomorrow, November 5th, and this is the first year Colorado has used all mail-in ballots for statewide elections. 

But ballots mailed in today might not make it to county elections offices on time to be counted. The Secretary of State's Office is urging voters to consider dropping off their ballots at local drop-off locations in order to avoid missing the deadline.
