The Lamar Chapter of Act! for America will be sponsoring a Voter Registration Drive in Prowers County, as well as other counties in Colorado. As we approach the most important 2016 election, the Drive will offer the opportunity for citizens to register to vote in a variety of locations and a variety of methods.
It is important to note that Colorado’s voter registration deadlines vary depending on the method utilized for registration.
Applications collected during a voter registration drive must be received or postmarked 22 days before the election.
Online registration is available through Election Day but must be completed by the 8th day before Election Day to receive a ballot in the mail, otherwise, you must go to a Voter Service and Polling Center. Register online at http://www.govotecolorado.com/
In-person registration can now be completed throughout the early voting period and on Election Day at a Voter Service and Polling Center.
Considering that the population of Prowers County is approximately 12,000 (in 2014), only 6,945 citizens are registered to vote (active and inactive).
Act! for America is the largest national grassroots organization in the U.S. with over 300,000 members and 900 chapters nationwide, dedicated to preserving national security and promoting Western values. The Lamar Chapter has been trained and certified to offer their time and energy to increase the number of citizens who can participate in elections and give citizens the opportunity to be aware of issues on the offices and candidates for which they are eligible to vote.
REGISTERING TO VOTE AT A VOTER REGISTRATION DRIVE IS SIMPLE AND QUICK! PLEASE VISIT US AT THE PEE-WEE WRESTLING TOURNAMENT AT THE LAMAR COMMUNITY BUILDING ON MARCH 12TH, 9:00-4:00.
