This is the main page for the Colorado Elections Project which is a wiki devoted to all the elections in Colorado. Our goal is to help everyone learn about the local elections that affect their lives. We believe that Colorado elections are critical to the health of our state

Local elections often have a greater effect on our lives than the big national elections. All k-12 public schools are governed by local school boards that have great influence over our children's education. Most police, fire and emergency services are provided by city or county governments. Despite their critical importance, most local elections have very poor voter participation and turnout.

Although our wiki cannot directly drive voter turnout, we believe that an informed electorate will be more active and make better choices. Our role is to make election information readily available to anyone looking for it.

There are over 500 election districts in Colorado at many levels including federal, state, city, county, school board, judicial and rural electric. We have divided our wiki by those main divisions.
