Civic Engagement

A vibrant democracy requires that voters be informed and have equal opportunity to participate in electing leaders and shaping public policy. Our nation was founded on the principles of one person, one vote, and Citizens Project seeks to educate local voters about their choices at the ballot box to help them make the most informed choices possible.

Below, you’ll find information and resources about upcoming elections in the Pikes Peak region, local government, and voting rights!
