Do you have a plan to vote yet?
This election is absolutely critical for all the issues we care about. You’ve probably heard a lot of people saying it is the most consequential election of our lifetimes. That’s because it is true.
The individuals that are elected up and down the ballot make decisions that will impact our children. We can teach our kids to look both ways before crossing the street, but we can’t single-handedly clean the air they breathe, protect our public lands or prevent climate change from limiting their opportunities. We need government representatives that will work on these issues with us.
So if you haven’t yet, please make a plan to vote and turn in your ballot by next Tuesday, Nov. 3rd. We have even made it easy for you:
We are lucky! We live in a state that makes voting as easy as 1..2..3… for us. You can register up to, and including, election day and still be able to vote in this election!
- Have questions about how to either get your ballot or turn in your ballot? Go to GoVoteColorado.com where you can check to see if you’re registered, register to vote, find in-person voting locations, and find drop-off boxes for your ballot.
- Not sure about all those ballot initiatives? We have a lot of them this year. There are several organizations that give background information about candidates and initiatives. Some will give recommendations on how to vote depending on your interests. They have all been listed in one handy site at ColoradoBallotGuide.com.
- Vote early! There is a lot going on this year so the more people who turn their ballots in, or vote in-person, as early as possible the better. It’s already too late to mail in your ballot (it must be received by 7pm on Election Day, NOT postmarked by then), so find your closest drop off box or in person voting location at JustVoteColorado.org, then make a plan to stop by THIS WEEK.
