With a record 18 proposals on everything from oil and gas taxes to unions to the developmentally disabled to gambling, Colorado voters will weigh in on the longest ballot in Colorado since 1912 — and the largest in the United States this year.

Here’s the lowdown on the five questions on Colorado’s November monster ballot that would have the biggest fiscal impacts. (Listed in their order of appearance on the ballot.)
