It's not always easy to know where to go to learn about your ballot. WFCO wants to help. We're creating our nonpartisan ballot guide, The Womanifesto, with statewide input from a diverse group of Coloradans committed to elevating opportunities for women to strengthen our state. The Womanifesto 2020 is now available for download, just as you receive your ballots in the mail. A Spanish version of The Womanifesto is also available for download now.
