What Your Vote Means

A “yes” vote on Amendment C allows nonprofit organizations operating in Colorado for three years to apply for a bingo-raffle license, permits these games to be conducted by workers who are not members of the organization, and allows workers to receive compensation up to minimum wage.

A “no” vote on Amendment C maintains the current requirements that nonprofit organizations must operate in Colorado for five years prior to applying for a bingo-raffle license, and that workers must be unpaid volunteers who are members of the nonprofit organization.
