The Colorado Constitution was ratified in 1876, earning it the nickname "The Centennial State". Since then, the Constitution has never been rewritten, but has been amended over 152 times. This fact has established the Colorado Constitution as one of the most easily amended state constitutions in the country. From its early days as a tri-lingual document to the controversial TABOR legislation.
