The right to vote is an important individual liberty. Not only is it our right, but I believe it is our duty. Election Day is almost here and it’s vital for you to make your voice heard.
The 2018 ballot is a long one with Federal offices, State offices, County offices, judicial retentions, numerous State ballot measures, County ballot measures, and City ballot measures included on them. Local items will be at the very end of your ballot, so I encourage you to start with the local issues first and vote from the bottom up. Casting your vote on these issues is key to shaping to future of our local community.
Greeley has two measures on the ballot, both tax extension requests. 20 is an extension request for quality of life tax, and 2P is an extension of sales tax for public safety. Visit greeleygov.com/elections where you can find links to ballot measure factual summaries and pro-con statements coordinated with the League of Women Voters – Greeley-Weld County.
The City of Greeley participates with Weld County in a coordinated election. Election Day is November 6, 2018, and there are many ways to vote. You can find information regarding mail-in ballots, vote centers, and voter registration on the Weld County Coordinated Election page, including links to vote center hours and locations. You can also find links to more information about all the issues and candidates on the ballot so you can make informed choices.
Our greatest civic duty is the ability to vote and decide the direction of our city, county, state, and country.
Every vote counts!
