Denver Votes Down Initiative 300

La Opinin, Posted: Nov 05, 2009

WASHINGTON -- Denver voters on Tuesday voted down Initiative 300, which would have required police to impound the vehicles of drivers without valid licenses and turn the detainees over to immigration authorities, reports La Opinin. The initiative was an updated version of Initiative 100, which passed last year. Jessie Ulibarri, state director of Mi Familia Vota, noted that the initiative was overwhelmingly rejected by the general population. "People realized that we're all part of this, and that if it were approved, it would affect other drivers," he told La Opinin. Initial reports indicate that the initiative received about 55,000 votes against and 25,000 in favor of it. An estimated 13.5 percent of Denver voters in the election were Latino, a substantial increase compared to elections in 2007, when the Latino vote was only 10.3 percent.
