A “yes” vote on Proposition 113 approves a bill passed by the legislature and signed by the Governor joining Colorado with other states as part of an agreement to elect the President of the United States by national popular vote if enough states enter the agreement.
A “no” vote on Proposition 113 rejects a bill passed by the legislature and signed by the Governor and retains Colorado’s current system of awarding all of its electors for the President of the United States to the winner of the Colorado popular vote.
