Tomorrow is Election Day. Have you turned in your ballot?

Doing your duty in every single election, even the so-called “off years,” is still the most important way that individual citizens can affect change. It’s in lower profile school board and city hall races across Colorado that the future leaders in both parties often get their start. This year, Colorado voters have the opportunity to make a smart investment in the state’s future by passing Proposition CC.

If you’re still holding on to that ballot, it’s too late to mail it in! But you can still vote until 7pm tomorrow! Visit JustVoteColorado.org for all the information you need on ballot drop-off locations, vote centers, and even same-day voter registration if you’re not already registered. There’s no state easier and safer to vote in than Colorado. On Wednesday morning, don’t have any regrets.

Once that’s done, here are a few more great ways to take action for the week of November 4:

Alianza NORCO: Thank You City Council / Gracias Al Ayuntamiento

Join us! This Tuesday we plan to go to the city council at 6pm for public comment. Our Fort Collins City Council passed a resolution in October to stand against inhumane treatment of immigrants at the border and in detention centers. The resolution won’t change policy, but is a symbolic show of support for our immigrant community and the greater struggle for immigrant rights. It is a way for them to speak their values and push for reforms to our national immigration policy, and an acknowledgment that cruelty anywhere affects all of us. Join us as we thank them for their show of empathy and courage, especially as hate-filled voices have risen against them!

Where: City of Fort Collins : City Hall, 300 Laporte Ave Bldg A, Fort Collins
