DENVER (CBSs4) – Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper dropped of his ballot in advance of Election Day on Tuesday.

Hickenlooper said he voted “yes” on Amendment 66 and urged other voters to do the same. The amendment is a tax increase that will be used for education in Colorado. Critics say the money won’t go to students but instead will be used for administrative costs.

This year all voters in Colorado received mail-in ballots. It’s too late to put ballots in the mail, but they can dropped at polling places by 7 p.m. on Election Day for the vote to count.
