CEA Today – October 2, 2020

There’s only a month until the election, and next Friday, October 9, ballots will be sent to all of Colorado’s registered voters. Are you ready to vote? How are you planning to get engaged?

On the Ballot: Amendment 76

Amendment 76 has no immediate impact on voting requirements in Colorado related to residency or registration and does not change current election law that excludes noncitizens from voting. However, it does disenfranchise voters under 18 as current law currently allows 17-year-olds to vote in Primary elections and will no longer be eligible to do so.

CEA recommends you vote NO on Amendment 76.
