Board Briefings
September 2022

Irene Tynes & Beth Hendrix

And we’re entering the homestretch, folks -- pre-election work is the heart and soul of the League!

We know that many League members are burning the midnight oil organizing candidate forums, researching ballot issues, and working to get out the vote – and we’re grateful!

LWVCO is preparing to publish the 86th edition of Ballot Issues, something we’ve done each year since 1936 to empower voters. Ballot Issues represents the work of many: researchers, writers, reviewers, translators, formatters, printers, and those responsible for distribution. Toni Larson and Gerry Cummins stepped up to the plate to provide expertise and guidance to members and partners researching each of Colorado’s 11 ballot issues and ensured that the League’s nonpartisan voice is maintained and heard.

Going Big on Better Voting Methods
By LWVCO's Alternative Voting Methods Task Force

Imagine voting for governor, US senator, or your state legislators using a voting method that lets you better express your opinions than our current vote-for-one plurality voting!  Our LWVCO Alternative Voting Methods Task Force wants to make this scenario a reality.
Join our Task Force so that every Local League can learn about and contribute to our action-and-advocacy plans and so that we can speak with a unified, powerful statewide voice. We would love to have at least one Task Force member from every Local League so that we can hear a wide range of perspectives and truly represent LWVCO on this important issue!
