League Advocacy and Action

Explore Our Advocacy and Action Resources

The LWV of Colorado advocates or lobbies on issues or causes when there is an existing League position that supports the issue or speaks to the cause. Local, state, and national positions result from a process of study, and positions are developed only when members reach consensus (the overall decision-making process by which substantial agreement among members is reached on an issue). Members are not required to agree with all League positions.

Voting Rights

Voting is a fundamental right and all eligible voters should have the equal opportunity to exercise that right.

We are dedicated to ensuring that our elections remain free, fair and accessible. For nearly 100 years, we have fought to protect the rights of eligible voters and expand access for those who’ve been left out of our democratic process. Our volunteers spearhead efforts to enact common-sense voting reforms and we are the first to fight back when voters’ rights are threatened. We protect millions of voters every year through aggressive advocacy and education efforts and we have been at the forefront of major voting rights court cases over the last decade.
