The Voter Service Team is the most visible face of LWVLC to the public. Its work is the bedrock of the League with its voter registration activities, voter education and campaigns to get out the vote. 

Read more about our work and many activities below. Also, be sure to check out the Hot Topics section at the bottom of the page for Local, State, and National news.



Team Activities:
Voter Registration – Voter registration drives are organized and held all year long at various venues including, high schools, colleges, food banks and community centers. Many LWVLC members as well as non-League members help to make our events a success.

Vote411.org - Invite local candidates to provide background info and answer a few unbiased questions relevant to the office they are seeking. Post our local ballot issue pamphlet information. Vote411.org links to Colorado voter registration and provides voters with a personalized ballot where they can compare candidates and study the ballot issues. Check it out by clicking here: Vote 411

Ballot Issues – We research, write, and publish unbiased pro-con pamphlets on local issues. Our speakers review local and state issues in order to give talks to League members and community groups. Local and state pamphlets are distributed to many locations in the County.

Candidate Forums – Our organizer arranges for venues and contacts candidates to coordinate dates and candidate availability. We enlist and train members to help as moderators, question sorters, ushers, and timers. Sample candidate questions are drafted for use with audience questions.

GOTV – We email, text, and send postcard reminders to newly registered voters. Our goal for the future is to collaborate with other non-partisan groups to expand efforts.

The 2018 mid-term elections had record turnouts, with the Colorado SOS office reporting 2,583,580 Coloradans cast votes that were counted by their county clerks.

One result of the higher turnout in Colorado is that the signature requirement for a citizens initiative for the next four years will be 124,632 valid voter signatures. It had been 98,492. The state constitution requires signatures from "at least 5 percent of the total number of votes cast for all candidates for the office of secretary of state at the previous general election."
The Secretary of State's website provides the election results Election Resultscomplete with maps that show voter turnout by county among other things.
