Action Alert: National Popular Vote
Published on: 7/5/2019
LWVCO asks members and public to show support for the National Popular Vote -- a petition is being circulated that threatens to nullify the bill signed by the governor in the last session.

It is a lot easier and, particularly, less expensive to defeat a petition drive than to run a campaign, so please do what you can over the next month and a half to defeat the petition drive and educate your friends.

Two New Voting Laws Go Into Effect

10 Aug 2019 -- Two new Election laws go into effect in Colorado, Modifications to the Uniform Election Code (HB19-1278) and Voting Access for People with Disabilities (SB19-202).

“These laws expand access to voting for all eligible Coloradans, and especially for young people, Coloradans living on tribal lands, and people with disabilities Colorado’s leadership in voting access shines in stark contrast to states across the country that are pushing a voter suppression agenda. Colorado is setting the national standard for access to elections and our democracy,” said Secretary of State Jena Griswold.
