Your State Representative

The way that you and any Colorado voter can easily help Approval Voting for Colorado is to contact their state representative and ASK THAT THIS SIMPLE BILL RECEIVE THEIR ATTENTION. Tell them that you Approve of Approval Voting. They may never have heard of it until YOU tell them. An elections bill that lacks voter support will not pass.

If you already know what House or Senate District you live in and vote in, here is a link to the Colorado General Assembly Pink Book. This will give you contact information not only for your representative, but all members of the house and senate.

If you don’t already know who your Representative and Senator are, you can use the Find My Legislator page to find them.

Our Approval Voting bill HB17-1281 instructs the Secretary of State to create rules and procedures for Approval Voting elections for use in elections after November 1st of 2017.
Local election supervisors in counties, cities/towns, and special districts need election rules from the Colorado Secretary of State.
Home Rule communities may already use Approval Voting without SoS rules, but find them valuable.
Approval Voting for Colorado seeks additional rules, not a change to existing rules.
Use of Approval Voting will be strictly voluntary by communities and districts that want to try it.
