Colorado Counties' Secession Attempt Headed for Failure at the Ballot Box

A proposal on the ballot in eleven Colorado counties failed to gain support in yesterday’s election.  Six of the eleven counties voted against secession, with votes in the remaining counties still being counted. 

The purpose of the vote was reclaim control from the state’s capitol of Democrat-contolled Denver on issues like gun control and green energy requirements.  “As the state has grown more urban, the rural counties pushing the secession movement have felt the Democrat-controlled Legislature has been ignoring their needs.”

Even if the voters had passed the measure, it would still need to be approved by state lawmakers and the US Congress.
