The League of Women Voters’ traces its history to the women’s suffrage movement which resulted in the 1920 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote. We know how precious the right to vote is! Throughout our almost 100 years, we have been dedicated to protecting voting rights and to registering new voters.
If you are a Colorado resident and not registered to vote, or need to update your information, click HERE. You will be directed to the Colorado Secretary of State website where you can complete all those important tasks!
We are equally committed to providing voters with the information they need to be able to make informed decisions We are nonpartisan –we never endorse, support or oppose any political candidate or political party. Our voter education materials and events present unbiased pro-con discussion on all ballot issues.
In addition to our voter education activities, we advocate on ballot issues and other important political matters, but only after in-depth research, study, and analysis, followed by members’ consensus on a position statement.
The League of Women Voters encourages its members and all of the public to become active participants in the political process across all levels of government!
