Colorado’s constitution outlaws slavery except as punishment for committing a crime. Amendment T would have removed that exception so that slavery was absolutely outlawed.

And Colorado voters aren’t quite sure they’re ready to do that.

Late Tuesday, Amendment T was behind by 3,000 votes, losing 50.7 percent to 49.3 percent.

That was with roughly 61.4 percent of the vote counted, and 40 of 64 counties reporting completely.
