Blue Book Finding Aid (Analysis of Colorado Ballot Proposals)

In election years the Colorado Legislative Council publishes information and in-depth analysis on proposed ballot measures, often called the "Blue Book." The booklets are published as part of the Council's "Research Publication" series. This guide has been developed in the interest of providing quick, easy access to these publications.
