The Colorado Secretary of State’s office announced on August 20 that nearly 125,000 valid signatures were received, giving the Right to Know Colorado campaign 145% of the number of signatures required for placement on the ballot. Right to Know Colorado submitted a total of 171,370 signatures by the August 4 deadline, with a 73% validity rate.
"This historic achievement is only possible because of the thousands of hours volunteers contributed to this effort," said Right to Know Colorado campaign Chair Larry Cooper. “We had more than 500 people collect signatures throughout the state with signatures from every county in the state. The people of Colorado made this happen."
"Thank you again to the hundreds of volunteers and the 171,370 people who signed in support of labeling GMOs," said campaign issue committee Co-chair Tryna Cooper. "Now we look toward to November and need your support. Go to our website atRighttoKnowColorado.org, donate, volunteer, get involved, and vote YES on 105!"
