As Mary Poppins cheerfully intoned, "For every job that must be done, there is an element of fun!" This year's election is no different. Although the ballot is loaded with seemingly endless and complex referendums and amendments, each is more easily understood when compared to candy. Amendmentos, like the candy Mentos, are the chewy (political) issues with the smooth, sugar-coated shell. As candy, Referendums L,M, N and Amendments 46, 48 and 51 are very clear to see.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
