It’s official.

Backers of a measure that would bring the minimum wage in Colorado to $12 an hour by 2020 did, in fact, collect enough signatures to put their initiative on the ballot.

The Colorado Secretary of State’s Office announced Thursday that the measure has around 114,939 valid signatures (based on a sampling of five percent of the nearly 200,000 signatures submitted), which is 116 percent of 98,492 necessary to make the ballot.
