The Colorado driver's license is getting a makeover and you can have some say in what it is going to look like.

The Colorado Department of Revenue started a contest back in August to help them design Colorado's new driver's license. They had more than 400 submissions of original art and photography for the contest and a committee narrowed it down to three.

The three choices for the front of the license are Mt. Sneffels, located between Telluride and Ouray; Maroon Bells, between Aspen and Crested Butte; and Black Canyon, west of Montrose. So far, Mt. Sneffels is leading the voting by a wide margin with 48% of the vote, and Black Canyon is a distant third. Of the three options being offered, my vote would probably go to the shot of Black Canyon of the Gunnison, probably because it's the closest to Grand Junction.

Voting for the picture on the back of the new license is extremely close with the photo of bison on the plains leading with 35% of the vote. Sprague Lake has 34% of the vote, and Shrine Ridge Trail near Vail has 32%. The images don't show up real well on the back - and of course, how often do you see the back of your license --but since we have to vote I'd probably go with Sprague Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Voting ends February 5 so you need to act fast to get your vote in. You can vote on the DMV Website. The winner of the contest will receive a $500 grant, while the others will receive a warm fuzzy feeling for being in the running.
