There's a big race right now to become the 51st state.
Forget traditional contenders like Puerto Rico. In several existing states, residents of less populous areas are hoping to create new states of their own.
Citizens in 11 mostly northeastern Colorado counties are among them. They'll vote on Nov. 5 whether to break off and form their own state. Many are unhappy about liberal state legislation they believe reflects the values of the Denver-Boulder corridor, but not their part of the world.
After Oct. 15, citizens of Weld County will start to see mail-in ballots arrive. Included in the off-year ballot are mayoral, city council and school district races. It will also include ballot question 1A, asking if the county should pursue separating from Colorado to form a new state.
When you’ve been involved in a serious traffic accident in Colorado, who comes to render aid, how much training and experience they have, and even how long it takes them to arrive will vary drastically, depending on where you are.
