Did we mention that Colorado’s 18-issue ballot this year is long? As in, the longest in the country? And the longest in Colorado since 1912? We did? Well, here’s something new to chew on. The two states pulling in second and third places — Oregon and California — don’t even come close to touching our massive, large-and-in-charge ballot. Those states count a meager 12 questions on each of their ballots. Hell, Colorado beat that back in 1992, when voters weighed in on a record 13 questions. That was the longest ballot in recent memory. But now, Colorado has unearthed this leviathan ballot. In fact, the ballot is so big that it’s impossible for us to continue our ballot run-down in neatly themed packages.

So here are three more randomly selected ballot issues to be put to Colorado voters this year.
