Why Colorado Elections Matter

Please join us for a casual evening of conversation - why Colorado elections matter:

Redistricting is on the line

In 2010, a Republican sweep of state legislature races allowed the GOP to gerrymander congressional districts nationwide, unfairly rigging elections in favor of Republican candidates. We cannot let this happen again. Many of the state legislators who will control the crucial redistricting process will be elected in 2018. Winning majorities in the legislature in 2018 is the first step towards protecting Colorado from Republican gerrymandering.

Progressive states are leading the Resistance

Trump’s destructive policies may originate in Washington, but they’ll be implemented in our communities by state and local officials. The more power local Democrats have, the more power the Resistance has to fight back. With a fully blue state government, Colorado could step up as a national leader in the Resistance. For example, winning the Attorney General’s office would allow us to join states like Hawaii and Washington in challenging the Trump administration’s unconstitutional actions in court.

But sweeping Republicans out of power is not inevitable

Despite massive election losses by Democrats over the past decade, we’re already seeing overconfident predictions of an inevitable Democratic sweep in 2018. If our crushing defeat in 2016 taught us nothing else, it’s that this line of thinking is a trap. In order to win landslide victories in 2018, we need a plan.
