"Voting is the right from which all other rights spring."  Thomas Paine


Just Vote Colorado is Colorado's statewide non-partisan election protection coalition committed to ensuring that every Colorado voter who is eligible to vote gets to vote and have his or her vote be counted.  JVC is not affiliated with or promoting any candidate or issue.  The JVC steering committee includes Colorado Common Cause, League of Women Voters of Colorado, Colorado Lawyers Committee, The Legal Center for People with Disabilities and Older People, and the Latina Initiative. 


JVC will have a call center in Denver on Election Day, staffed by volunteers with knowledge of, and expertise in, Colorado and federal election laws.  Faith Gross, VOTE! Program Coordinator with The Legal Center, will be at the call center throughout Election Day to assist with calls and concerns of voters with disabilities.  


You can reach the call center by calling, toll free, 1-866-687-8683 (1-866-OUR-VOTE).  You can also visit the JVC website at www.justvotecolorado.org.  Information available through the website and call center includes verification of voter registration and finding a voter's polling place.


JVC will also deploy approximately 300 volunteers to monitor polling sites throughout Colorado in order to assist voters who may have questions or encounter problems with voting.  These poll monitors are non-partisan and will be stationed outside of polling places to provide basic voting rights information and non-partisan assistance.


JVC partners with Election Protection. Election Protection is the nation's largest nonpartisan voter protection coalition, led by the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law.  Through its 1-866-OUR-VOTE hotline (1-866-687-8683) and dedicated team of experts and trained volunteers, Election Protection helps all American voters, including traditionally disenfranchised groups, gain access to the polls and overcome obstacles to voting, offering live assistance. The coalition has more than 100 partners at the national, state and local level and is providing live voter protection services now through Election Day for all 50 states. For more information about Election Protection and the 1-866-OUR-VOTE Hotline, please visit: www.866ourvote.org.
