24 Jan Week 1
January 24th, 2017
Well, we made it through the first few weeks of session. It’s been a wild ride already; from attending committee meetings to introducing three bills on voting, energy, and affordable housing (more on these below). I’ve heard from many of you so far, and I hope to continue to receive emails, phone calls, and letters with your feedback on the issues that you care about. More than ever, it’s important that we come together and continue to fight for our values and make our voices heard.
Improving our democracy
As you know, I care a bit about election access and making sure our democracy is fair and accessible for all Coloradans. Every election, there are reports of hours-long lines for people to vote–sometimes people are even still in line to vote after the election has been called. My first bill requires the measuring of wait times for voters at polling sites, which allows us to better understand where we can improve the voting process. If we already do this simple task at the deli counter and at Elitches, we should do it for the democratic process. If any of you have stories you’d like to share about waiting in long lines to vote, send me a note or join me in committee at the Capitol and offer your testimony on Wednesday, January 25th at 1:30pm.
