Secretary of State Bernie Buescher announced yesterday that Proposition 102 has qualified for the November ballot. Prop. 102 is an initiative that would restrict the use of pretrial release programs under certain circumstances, requiring that defendants arrested for anything other than a nonviolent misdemeanor and first-time offense can only be released on a secured bond.
This brings the total number of measures on Colorado's ballot to nine. Six of those are initiatives; the other three were referred to the ballot by the Legislature.
