- Voters in the Denver suburb of Broomfield, Colo., narrowly approve a five-year moratorium on fracking after a recount by county officials; the new results mean that all four Colorado communities with similar measures on the ballot this month voted to reject fracking.
- The results in Broomfield, on the edge of the Niobrara Shale, were closely watched because the community is considered less liberal than those which passed anti-fracking measures.
- Active in the Niobrara: NBL, APC, WPX, BBG, CRZO, BCEI, SYRG, PDCE.
