Colorado voters are going to see a long ballot in November. From choosing the next Governor to deciding on important ballot initiatives, voters will have their work cut out for them. Colorado voters have a unique responsibility to directly vote on policies affecting their communities. Voters don’t take their responsibility lightly, but many people don’t know enough about the issues and decide not to vote all the way down the ballot. Being an informed decision maker provides another essential piece of the foundation for creating the thriving communities we all aspire to build.
Count Me In! is a robust civic engagement effort that reaches into communities across the state through trusted community members to educate voters and potential voters on the issues they will see on the ballot. The 2018 effort is underway, working with partners across the state to set up events for their communities so voters can feel educated and empowered to participate in the election.
NWCCOG is partnering with Count Me In! to bring this event to Eagle County.
