FYI: 2014 Legislative Blue Book

The Blue Book provides voter information on ballot measures.The Colorado 2014 Legislative Blue Book is available in pdf and mp3 formats (courtesy of the Colorado Talking Book Library).

The purpose of the ballot information booklet is to provide voters with the text, title, and a fair and impartial analysis of each initiated or referred constitutional amendment, law, or question on the ballot. The analysis must include a summary of the measure, the major arguments both for and against the measure, and a brief fiscal assessment of the measure. The analysis may also include any other information that will help voters understand the purpose and effect of a measure.

Article V, Section 1 (7.5), Colorado Constitution, and Section 1-40-124.5, Colorado Revised Statutes, require the Legislative Council Staff to prepare the ballot information booklet prior to each election in which a statewide issue will appear on the ballot.
