HOTLY CONTESTED PRIMARIES DEMAND PARTICIPATION
Voters: Make Sure Your Vote Counts!
Voters should visit www.JustVoteColorado.org or call 1-866-OUR-VOTE through Election Day to get nonpartisan, free, and confidential advice on registration and voting
Denver— While Election Day is not until August 10th, many Colorado voters are already casting ballots. To ensure that all voters are able to participate, Just Vote! Colorado Election Protection has launched a website and toll-free hotline (1-866-OUR-VOTE) where voters can seek non partisan, free, and confidential advice on voting questions.
A recent change in Colorado law allows counties to conduct the primary election by mail. In 47 of 64 counties, mail ballots have been sent to Colorado voters who are affiliated with a political party. These counties will also have Service Centers, where voters can vote on accessible voting machines, get a replacement ballot, and address any other voting problems. Voters can also drop off their ballots at the service centers if they prefer not to mail them. Colorado voters who are registered to vote but not affiliated with a political party may affiliate at a Service Center or polling place and vote in the primary election.
At the www.JustVoteColorado.org website and through the 1-866-OUR-VOTE hotline, voters will be able to:
ü Check their voter registration status
ü Learn the method of voting in their county
ü Find Service Centers and ballot drop-off locations, including drive-thru drop-offs
ü Report problems voting
“With hotly contested primaries on both sides of the aisle, every vote matters. Indeed for many races, particularly for the state legislature, the winner is determined by the primary election, not the general,” noted Jenny Flanagan, Executive Director of Colorado Common Cause and part of the JVCEP Steering Committee. “Just Vote! Colorado Election Protection is working to ensure that every voter, whether Republican, Democrat or Unaffiliated, is able to participate.”
Just Vote! Colorado Election Protection is a non-partisan coalition working to ensure that every eligible voter who wants to vote is able to do so, and that every vote is counted accurately. The JVCEP Steering Committee includes Colorado Common Cause, the League of Women Voters of Colorado, the Colorado Lawyers Committee, the Latina Initiative, and The Legal Center for People with Disabilities and Older People. The Colorado program is coordinated in collaboration with the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law's national Election Protection coalition. JVCEP is not affiliated with or promoting any candidate or issue.
