On October 15, the Colorado State Court of Appeals agreed with the lower court that Amendment 66 should remain on the ballot. Opponents of the initiative had charged that the petition should be rejected. Colorado requires notarization of petitions. Opponents said that the notary public himself or herself should have written in the type of identification that petitioner had presented, such as a drivers license. Instead, on some sheets, the petitioner had filled in that blank, instead of the notary public. The initiative needed 86,105 valid signatures, and had 89,820 valid signatures, assuming the points raised in the lawsuit were disregarded.
Also opponents of the initiative had said that some sheets were invalid because the petitioner didn’t always include his or her permanent address. Here is an editorial about the lawsuit. The editorial expresses the view that the objections to the petition are not important enough to invalidate the petition.
