Election 2016!

election 2016

This 2016 election is making history every which way!  The presidential campaign has preoccupied the media. The important Senatorial and House of Representatives campaigns are attracting a great deal of outside money. Similarly, the influx of outside money for state legislative elections may hit new highs this year.

The 2016 Ballot presents us voters with a very long and varied list of ballot issues at the state, county and local levels – perhaps the longest ballot in Colorado history. Given all these pressures, balanced information about candidates and local ballot issues are critically important to help voters make informed choices that are right for them. Get informed yourself with our online and print resources!

It is these state and local ballot issues that have the greatest impact on our everyday lives. Given that, it is in our own, individual best interest to learn about these issues and make sure we are casting an informed vote on the issues. It’s also in our community-wide best interests that we be sure that we also encourage our friends and family to inform themselves about the issues and make sure their voice is heard at the polls.

The League of Women Voters of Larimer County maintains a number of Election 2016 resources and print and online information to help you get informed, get involved, and participate in this busy election season.
