now wait for the Secretary of State to approve the signatures so they can officially secure a spot on the ballot for measures to re-institute Presidential Primaries, Ballot Measure 140, and to Open taxpayer-financed Primary elections to unaffiliated voters, Ballot Measure 98.
Said Gwen Ballard, founder of CIVIC (Coalition of Independent Voters in Colorado): "The Let Colorado Vote initiatives are a great first step in efforts to restore to the voters the power currently held by the political parties, although I believe they don't go far enough. At least they will allow the 38% of Colorado voters registered as 'unaffiliated' to participate in the electoral process instead of restricting a major part of that process to 'party regulars'."
Callers at IndependentVoting.org have begun polling independent voters in Colorado, and when it comes to initiatives 98 and 140, nearly 90% of independents They spoke to support the initiatives. 75% of independents in Colorado noted that they were dissatisfied with their choices for President.
