Important Swing Races - How to Help

HELP ORPHAN PRECINCTS and SWING RACES:

 

With the October 9 deadline for voter registration approaching, orphan precincts in Denver may need your help. Email GOTV@denverdemocrats.org to be put to work!  Candidates in tough but very winnable races also need Denver's help. If Colorado turns out, we will take back our State House and keep our State Senate Blue!

 

Here is a list of the top Swing Races, with website links and events (if we know about them).  Jump in and help canvass, phone bank, deliver literature, etc.:

*These folks are on the Statesman’s July “Top 12 Legislative Races" in Colorado list, which is also where the stats are from.  Thank you Ernest Luning - 7/27/12 issue (presumably updated monthly).
 
**Voter registration figures are current through the last day of June (thank you Mr. Luning) and reflect active voters as reported by the Colorado Secretary of State. Numbers could be changing dramatically - both parties are conducting registration drives and working to activate voters. Percentages of the total might not equal 100 because of rounding and third-party registration.
