Amendment 65 is a Colorado Corporate Contributions Amendment that will be on the ballot as an advisory question.
It seems that the amendment is little known, even though it could have a big impact on future elections.
Some in Grand Junction that we talked to say the parade of political ads has them hoping such an amendment will pass.
Sheila Reiner, Mesa County clerk and recorder said, "Amendment 65 is a state question that is contemplating limiting the amount that campaigns can spend."
Amendment 65 states that it would allow federal and state lawmakers to limit campaign contributions and spending.
Grand Junction local, Kyle Kaiser said, "The whole idea that limiting spending is limiting freedom of speech, but I think when your spending so much money and you're kind of having to buy your way into the race, I don't think it's a matter of free speech anymore but a matter of equality."
Recent estimates say a record $7.8 billion will be spent on federal elections this year.
Many locals say they would support an amendment that would direct our congressional delegation to support campaign financial limits.
"It being a swing state, it's been disgusting to watch the amount of money being poured into this election, it just seems to, in my mind, cover up all the issues and leave us all with nothing but sound bites" says Grand Junction local, Jay Stein.
Another local, Jeff Swarts said, "I think there’s way too much money spent on campaigns, for a main reason I hate watching the TV ads all the time, I think you should just read about it and have it explained clearly pro and con and forget all ads."
