The last mile

We’ve all worked so hard and (thank goodness) election day is almost here.

Your help this week will make all the difference!

Here’s How We Win:

1. Contact a campaign right now and tell them you can help! You can knock on some doors, phone targeted voters, or help in other ways.

2. Text people to vote. The Hustle texting app makes it easy to send personalized reminder texts to voters in your area. You can even do this in front of the television! To get set up, send email to and include your own mobile phone number.

3. Put your name in now to protect the vote on election day. Become an Election Watcher. It’s critical work, and the party needs to hear from you ahead of time so they can put you on the official list. (There’s a history of Republicans trying to discourage in-person voting at certain polling locations. Don’t let them get away with it this time.)

4. Make sure all your friends vote with this simple tool that’s also a game. Go to and click on the square for either the Phil Weiser campaign or the Colorado Democrats.

5. Tell EVERYONE to VOTE DEM FROM THE BOTTOM UP! Don’t skip any race! The power to change things starts locally.

6. Remind people about the ballot initiatives! Recommendations:

2018 Legislative Session Ends

A wrap-up from Morgan Carroll, Chair of the Colorado Democratic Party, below. In addition, in the last hours the state legislature approved a plan aimed at stabilizing the teacher retirement pension, and reauthorized the Colorado Civil Rights Commission.

We are lucky in Colorado; our bipartisan state legislature manages to do good work. But so many good efforts are nonetheless blocked or forced into last-minute compromises by far right Republicans. 2018 elections are critical to make real, lasting change! We must get out the vote and focus on these local elections; that’s our work for the foreseeable future.

From Morgan Carroll’s Newsletter

The 2018 legislative session ended yesterday. Thanks to the hard work of Governor Hickenlooper and Democratic legislators, we scored some major accomplishments, including a bipartisan compromise to fund job-creating infrastructure projects, funding to cover the reduced cost of lunch for students, investments in rural broadband, expanding the child care tax credit, and putting a bipartisan redistricting reform package on the ballot.

But far too often, Republicans in the State Senate used their razor-thin one-seat majority to kill scores of good Democratic bills like a bump stock ban, a red flag bill to prevent gun violence, legislation to stop prescription drug price-gouging, and a ban on conversion therapy. Not to mention the Senate GOP’s refusal to expel GOP sexual harasser Randy Baumgardner.

We know that our state is capable of so much more. But it’s hard to tackle big issues with one GOP-controlled chamber putting the special interests ahead of Coloradans.

This next election is critical. If we want to make sure that everyone in Colorado has the opportunity to succeed and make sure everyone is benefiting from our state’s economic success, we need to elect a Democratic governor to succeed Hickenlooper, and we need to flip the State Senate.

We can only do it because of support like yours. Let’s multiply it. Will you forward this email to friends and loved ones that support Democratic values? (Here’s a signup link, a donation link, and/or a volunteer link for them.)

Thank you for all you do.

In solidarity,

Morgan Carroll
Chair, Colorado Democrats

Blue Wave Kickoff Party 2018

Thank you to all who came out and participated in the PCP Blue Wave Kickoff Party at Varsity Inn.  Not sure how many folks we had in attendance, but all the seats were full!

The 2 hour event included a fun ice breaker, Beckman Fact or Fiction, Corruption Junction Trivia, a few words by HD38 Rep Candidate Chris Kolker, and of course pizza and beer!

We even managed to raise a little money for the County!

A huge thanks to Varsity Inn for letting us hold the event there!  Hope we can do it again sometime soon.

In this critical election year, we can’t succumb to cynicism or put our heads in the sand. We must fight with everything we’ve got to reclaim our democracy.
