You are asking, we are answering. How to Vote in Colorado’s Upcoming Midterm Elections

The 2022 Midterm Elections Are On The Horizon – Planning To Vote? Do you know how to vote, where to vote, and what you might need when you go to the polls? What if your voter registration is out of date, has an error, or is challenged at the polls? What can you do? And after redistricting, how do you know which state and congressional races it will decide?

KUNC is part of a new community-driven journalism project to answer those questions and any others you have about exercising your right to vote in the upcoming midterm elections.

Our mission is to provide you with the information you need to vote; we are not concerned with how you vote or who you vote for; we just want to make sure you have the information you need to vote and understand how elections are conducted and kept safe.

This project is part of the work of America Amplified, an initiative funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting to support community-engaged journalism in public media. We are also working with 28 other public media stations across the country to ensure that all eligible US citizens can vote.

This year’s midterms in Colorado will be different. Some elected officials installed bulletproof glass and new cameras in their offices due to threats they say they have received since the 2020 election.

With some residents making unsubstantiated accusations of voter fraud, there is also a new approach to preventing voter misinformation.

Colorado lawmakers have passed several new regulations aimed at stopping voter intimidation. That includes a law that prohibits people from openly carrying firearms near polling places.

With misinformation and misinformation circulating about elections and election security, we’re here to answer your questions.

Are these elections important? Arguably, all elections are important. But this one could probably change the balance of power in our state and our country. You can’t stay out of this if you care what’s going on.

“We do not have a majority government. We have a majority government that participates.” That truism is often misattributed to Thomas Jefferson. But regardless of attribution, it remains true that you can’t change anything unless you choose to participate in the process.
