1-40-104. Designated representatives

Statute

At the time of any filing of a draft as provided in this article, the proponents shall designate the names and mailing addresses of two persons who shall represent the proponents in all matters affecting the petition and to whom all notices or information concerning the petition shall be mailed.

 

Source: L. 93: Entire article amended with relocations, p. 677, § 1, effective May 4.

Editor’s note: The former § 1-40-104 was relocated to § 1-40-108 (1) in 1993.
 
ANNOTATION

The designation requirement is a procedural one, so the proponents’ failure to designate two persons to receive mail notices did not deprive the board of jurisdiction. Matter of the Proposed Initiated Constitutional Amendment Concerning Limited Gaming in the City of Antonito, 873 P.2d 733 (Colo. 1994), overruled in Hayes v. Ottke, 2013 CO 1, 293 P.3d 551.
Definition [Person]

Any natural person, partnership, committee, association, corporation, labor organization, political party, or other organization or group of persons. Section 2(11) of article XXVIII of the state constitution.
