• Registering Voters in Fort Collins, Colorado

    Caitlin

    Caitlin and the Fort Collins team get ready for Saturday’s day of action.

    It is a great feeling to realize that when we call volunteers, organize events, and set up meetings, summer organizers across the country are empowering volunteers and giving supporters the opportunity to work for causes that we all care passionately about.

    When we began to organize Fort Collins’ first Day of Action last week, I couldn’t wait to get on the phone with Joe—a volunteer who is committed to empowering Latino voters. He was so excited to hear that we were going to be registering voters at the Tres Colonias Museum, which celebrates Latino heritage.

    On Saturday, we were out and about talking to food lovers at our local farmer’s market, craft lovers at the French Nest market, music lovers at the music venue Avogadro’s Number, and local history lovers at the Tres Colonias Museum.

    We registered over 30 new voters in Larimer County this weekend with the help of our volunteer leaders. It was great to see what a difference we could make in just one afternoon.

    If you weren't able to join the day of action in your community on Saturday, don’t worry—there will be plenty more opportunities to get involved. Make sure to sign up here to get all the latest news on what's happening where you are.

    This is what this organization is all about—empowering people in our communities to build a grassroots movement and to get President Obama elected again!
