Right now you need to be 25 to be a Colorado legislator. If this measure passes, you would only have to be 21. Would you vote to lower the age? I will vote no. My usual rule with ballot measures and additional ammendments is to vote no unless it is a super good idea. Not broke, don't fix it. I don't think Colorado will benefit any from immature legislators.

Agree, vote no on most ballot amendments. Even some that sound reasonable may have poor design and language so be very skeptical.

This was a good summary for reading:

Agree. Surprised the candidates in 2016 were so old. And 2020 doesn't look better. Biden and Hillary might be running again.

You really think Hillary is going to run for president again?

You "guys" always let your fears overwhelm you..

Thats absurd

I think it would be absurd for her to run but it would not be surprising either considering she still has not accepted her loss. Who do your sources say is the most likely candidate that could beat Trump? Don't give me a long list, give me your gut feeling on a few of the heavy hitters on that big Democrat bench. All I see are jokes and people who will be dead soon.

Cory 'Sparticus' Booker and Kamala Harris. I'd be surprised if they don't both give it a shot.

I also wouldn't be surprised if Hillary considers it for the reason Slick gives. Also because she and Bill crave money like junkies and they found it a good source of funds in the past.

Booker thinks he's the next Obama and Harris think the majority of the country thinks like CA politicians... both are dead wrong.

I'm surprised nobody is talking much about Amendment 73. Its a massive Constitutional change to income taxes and probably property taxes in Colorado. And the "polls" say it may very well pass at 58%.

I think this state has gone nuts, welcome to Cali-rodo! Go Governor Polis!

You do know that you have to have a lot of backing to run for president, you just can't decide youre going to run for president and have any kind of chance without the money... a lot more money than the Clintons have..

Nobody is investing in her
