Colorado Secretary of State: “Restoration of Gray Wolves” Initiative Qualifies For 2020 Ballot

January 6, 2020 — The Elections Division at the Colorado Secretary of State’s office announced today that Proposed Initiative 107 (“Restoration of Gray Wolves”) has qualified for the 2020 General Election ballot.

The “Restoration of Gray Wolves” Initiative is a statewide initiative and therefore requires at least 5% of the total number of votes cast for all candidates for the office of secretary of state at the previous general election, which in this case is 124,632. This requirement is outlined by Article V, Section 1 (3) of the Colorado constitution.  After reviewing a 5% sample of the 215,370 submitted signatures, the projected number of valid signatures is greater than 110% of the total number required.

The Calculation of Sufficiency is available here. The text of the “Restoration of Gray Wolves” Initiative is available here.

A record of all accepted and rejected signatures, including reasons for each rejection is on file with the Secretary of State.

The other initiatives approved for the 2020 ballot at this time are Senate Bill 19-042 National Popular Vote Referendum and Initiative 76 (“Citizen Qualification of Electors”).
