Polis Jumpstarts Remote Signature Gathering As The Ballot Becomes A Budget Battleground
Amanda Gonzalez, executive director of the Colorado Common Cause advocacy group, said short term adjustments could help the ballot process maintain some normalcy. The new order allows the Secretary of State to adjust deadlines and other details, she noted, but voters will still hold the ultimate say.
“Voters are still going to vote on (these measures), assuming the signatures are collected,” she said.
Any longer-term changes would have to be carefully considered, however. She envisioned a scenario where push notifications and mobile phones make it far easier for certain causes to get on the ballot.
