Who is the Colorado Criminal Justice Reform Coalition?

Our mission is to reverse the trend of mass incarceration in Colorado. We are a coalition of nearly 7,000 individual members and over 100 faith and community organizations who have united to stop perpetual prison expansion in Colorado through policy and sentence reform.

Our chief areas of interest include drug policy reform, women in prison, racial injustice, the impact of incarceration on children and families, the problems associated with re-entry and stopping the practice of using private prisons in our state.

If you would like to be involved please go to our website and become a member.

Register to Vote

Remember you can vote from jail
Longmont Times Call
The Nov. 3 Election Day is coming as fast as ever with this year’s all mail-in ballot.

In just a couple of weeks, voters will have their ballots, which go into the mail Oct. 13-16. Voters may return them to the clerk’s office promptly. The deadline for returning ballots to the clerk’s office is Election Day.

To participate, voters must be registered by Monday.

It also is worth verifying that the county clerk has current registration information.

Taking those steps is easy:

Verify registration at www.voteboulder.org.

Registration forms also are available at that Web site, and may be returned via e-mail or fax.

Residents also may register in person at Boulder County Clerk and Recorder offices at:

529 Coffman St., Longmont

1750 33rd St., Boulder

722 Main St., Louisville

National political debate has garnered a lot of attention lately. But local elections seat city councils and school boards and decide issues that affect residents right here in our towns. Cities and school districts deserve due deliberation and great voter turnout.

Make sure you are registered, and please vote.

Participation makes our community a better place to live.
