Colorado moves to expand tribal voting, disclose candidate income in elections

The Denver Gazette: Colorado lawmakers approved a host of changes to the state’s election system with the passage of Senate Bill 276 on Saturday. 

The near-annual election “clean up” bill is drafted in coordination with the Secretary of State’s Office, county clerks and other stakeholders. This year, the bill seeks to make several changes, including expanding voting access on tribal lands and establishing personal income disclosures for political candidates. 

The House passed SB 276 in a 44-19 vote, following the Senate’s 29-6 passage last month. The bill will next go back to the Senate to approve changes made by the House, and then to the governor for final consideration.
