AFSCME Council 18 Endorsements - Colorado

As people in public service, we know what a difference it makes when we elect leaders who have our backs. We deserve leaders who respect our work and that is why we support pro-worker and pro-public service candidates and issues up and down the ballot.  Please take a moment below to see our list of endorsed candidates for 2020.  Please come back because we may update this list leading up to the election.

Members and voters, click here to make sure that your records are up to date with the Colorado Secretary of State to ensure that you receive your mail ballot for the upcoming elections.  For both the June 30 Primary Election and the November 3 General Election, you can click here to find out where to drop off your ballot.  With the public health crisis, in-person voting options will be limited, but County Clerks are working hard to provide curbside and other options for you to correct your registration, register and vote in person if that is needed for your situation.
