A proposition seeking the labeling of foods containing genetically modified organisms will be on the November ballot, the Colorado Secretary of State said Wednesday.

Signatures were verified for the ballot initiative — Proposition 105 — according to the group, meaning the question will go before voters in this year’s elections.

“We did it!” Right to Know Colorado, which is backing the effort, said in a Facebook post.

The proposition is now one of four that will be on the November ballot, including one asking voters to recognize unborn children as persons and another establishing an education fund financed by expanded gaming at horse racetracks.
