What We Do

The League of Women Voters has worked since 1920 to improve local, state and national government and strengthen our communities through citizen education and action. Rooted in the fight for women’s suffrage, the League has grown to include men as members and to protect the rights of all eligible voters.

The League of Women Voters is nonpartisan; it never supports or opposes candidates or political parties. The League does take action on issues of importance to its members and the community, after studying them in-depth.

SUPPORT SB 99
National Popular Vote Agreement
Sponsors:  Sen. Kerr; Rep. Rosenthal
Do you think it’s undemocratic that a candidate can lose the presidency, even though a majority of the voters in the US vote for him or her? The National Popular Vote (NPV) Agreement is a way to work around the Electoral College. 
 
If Colorado joins NPV, it will join 10 states and the District of Columbia. Each state that passes it agrees that all of its electoral votes will go to the presidential candidate who receives the most popular votes in all fifty states and the District of Columbia. The Agreement will take effect only when enacted by states possessing a majority (270) of the 538 total electoral votes.
 
NPV has passed one house of the Colorado General Assembly on 3 different occasions, but never went all the way.  Let’s make it happen this year!
 
SB 99 will be heard in the Senate State, Veterans and Military Affairs (SVM) committee on Feb. 15 at 1:30 pm. 

 

Call to ask members of the committee to vote YES on SB99. SVM Committee
