New to Colorado; today got new auto plates, registered to vote and voted

Today, I'm about as much of a Colorado resident as I can be without getting my driver's license switched over.  The process to get Colorado plates for an out-of-state car is not painful, but it does have an extra step I've never seen before.  You have to get something called a VIN Verification form filled out by either a licenced auto dealer, licenced emissions checker or an officer of the law.  So, Allie and I went to the police station to ask an officer to fill out the form for our cars.  Fortunately, the DMV was in the same property, so we immediately went there from the police station.  In between the police station and the DMV was a voting station.  Apparently today, there just happens to be a ballot measure called BB which asks Coloradans what they want to do with all the extra marijuana tax revenue.  So, after we got out of DMV with our new licence plates, we walked over to the voting station.  We registered to vote.  We then voted.  All this, and there is still plenty of daylight remaining to enjoy the rest of the day.
