'Personhood' amendment fails in Colorado

Voters rejected Amendment 62 in Colorado. This amendment, referred to as the personhood amendment, would have defined a ‘person’ as beginning at conception. Early results show overwhelming opposition.

Other ballot measures to watch for as results continue to come in across the country: Proposition 19 in California would legalize marijuana; the amendment in Illinois would allow for recalling a governor by petition; and Proposition 106 in Arizona would prohibit mandatory participation in the health care system.
