  • City of Fountain – tax increase – 2A (seeks to increase sales tax three quarters of one percent to fund a number of transportation projects)
  • City of Fountain ¬ home rule Charter question – 2B
  • City of Colorado Springs -referred measure – 2C
  • City of Colorado Springs – initiated ordinance – 300
  • City of Manitou Springs – Question No. 1 – 2D (seeks to dissolve charter mandate that one-sixth of city sales tax be earmarked for capital improvements)
