One Colorado Begins Statewide Voter Outreach in 2020 Election Cycle 

Denver, CO — One Colorado, the state’s leading advocacy organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) Coloradans and their families, is gearing up for the November 3rd election.

“This November, not only are we voting on candidates that can expand and protect the rights of LGBTQ Coloradans and their families, we are voting on key issues all the way down the ballot that impact our community. We are lucky to live in Colorado, where we work hard to make sure that the ballot box is accessible to all Coloradans, including LGBTQ Coloradans. Voting by mail and using dropboxes is the safest way to vote during this pandemic and we at One Colorado encourage all eligible voters to do so.”

Branden Shafer, Organizing & Political Manager, One Colorado

One Colorado is planning a host of activities, from Denver to Grand Junction and all four corners of the state, to engage its members in the 2020 election. Every week One Colorado will offer multiple volunteer trainings, phone banks, and text banks to encourage our supporters to vote.

Volunteers are hand-writing tens of thousands of postcards that will be addressed, stamped, and mailed at the same time as their ballots are mailed to them. One Colorado is hosting a virtual discussion of the federal Equality Act with Colorado leaders, as well as virtual debate watching parties, beer and ballot parties, ballot drop-off live streams, and guided tours of ballot processing sites.

One Colorado recognizes that the stakes of this election are enormous for the LGBTQ community. Turning out all pro-equality supporters over the next five weeks is the highest priority to ensure our voices are heard.
