The battle is heating up over how Colorado draws its legislative and congressional boundaries. After failing to knock out a pair of proposed redistricting and reapportionment ballot measures in court, a rough coalition of mostly liberal and good-government groups filed competing ballot measures in late December and is vowing to take the choice before voters this fall — potentially a case of, if you can't beat 'em in court, join 'em on the ballot.

Four more Colorado counties have been told to help voters with bilingual issues, while another county no longer has to offer election materials in English and Spanish, the Colorado Secretary of State's office announced in a news release. The U.S. Census Bureau, on Monday, Dec. 5, identified which political subdivisions nationwide must "provide language assistance during elections for groups of citizens who are unable to speak or understand English adequately enough to participate in the electoral process." The jurisdictions are subject to the minority language provision of Section 203 of the Voting Rights Act.
