Denver driving measure losing in early returns

DENVER, Colorado – A Denver proposal to force police to take cars from people caught driving without a license is losing badly in early returns.

The proposal is losing more than 2-to-1 in early returns. About 36,000 voters rejected the proposal, and 17,595 said yes. The measure is aimed at illegal immigrants and would toughen an existing law allowing police officers to impound cars from people they suspect to be in the country illegally.

The Denver question is among hundreds of municipal questions facing Colorado voters Tuesday. About 65 mayor and council seats were up for grabs.

And in Breckenridge, voters were considering whether it should be legal for adults to possess up to 1 ounce of marijuana.
