When we first read how an initiative to allow sports betting in Colorado would appear on the ballot next week, the language made our collective mouths dropped.  Turns out we're not the only one's.

The ballot question reads:

SHALL STATE TAXES BE INCREASED BY TWENTY-NINE MILLION DOLLARS ANNUALLY TO FUND STATE WATER PROJECTS AND COMMITMENTS AND TO PAY FOR THE REGULATION OF SPORTS BETTING THROUGH LICENSED CASINOS BY AUTHORIZING A TAX ON SPORTS BETTING OF TEN PERCENT OF THE NET SPORTS BETTING PROCEEDS, AND TO IMPOSE THE TAX ON PERSONS LICENSED TO CONDUCT SPORTS BETTING OPERATIONS?

“The biggest challenge to sports betting passing, frankly, is a misunderstanding of the ballot language,” said David Farahi, the Chief Operating Officer of Black Hawk’s Monarch Casino-Spa. “The ballot language is a bit confusing,” Farahi added.

More specifically, the beginning part of the question: “SHALL STATE TAXES BE INCREASED.”

Almost every time Coloradans have been asked a question that starts with ‘shall taxes be raised,’ Farahi added, “they’ve said no and they don’t even read the rest of the ballot question.” He believes the success of proposition DD depends on voters choosing to read the entire ballot language. “It really depends on if voters take the time to understand what DD is asking them.”

Tuesday is D Day in Colorado, or should we say DD Day.  We should know by the early morning hours of Wednesday whether sports betting becomes a reality in the state in 2020.
