DENVER (KDVR) — Election results are still coming in after Denver residents were asked to vote on eight ballot measures that will affect the Mile High City.

As of 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday Nov. 9, Denver Elections said there are still 146,500 ballots remaining to be counted, due to the high volume of ballots cast on Election Day.

This story will be updated as results are confirmed.

Initiated Ordinance 305

This citizen-driven proposal is known as “No Eviction Without Representation.” This measure is asking voters whether or not Denver should charge landlords to pay for attorneys for every person who gets evicted. The measure says it would tax landlords $75 annually for each property they own.

Initiated Ordinance 306

Initiated Ordinance 307

This measure asks voters if the city should charge property owners a fee in order to create a sidewalk master plan. The fees from owners would then be used to create a program that would be dedicated to sidewalk construction, maintenance and repairs.

Referred Question 2l

This measure asks voters if property taxes should be increased to help fund the Denver Public Library. The measure states that taxes would increase by approximately $4.19 per month for the typical home. The money would be given to the library in order to maintain its existing services and meet demands for additional services.
