WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 2020 AT 5 PM – 6:30 PM
National Popular Vote Town Hall - League of Women Voters of La Plata County
Come join the League of Women Voters of La Plata County and Colorado State Senator Mike Foote on a live webinar to learn more about Proposition 113 and the campaign to ensure that every person’s vote for the presidency is equal. We will start by showing the award-winning documentary, Winner Take All, from 5:00 - 5:30 pm, followed by a short presentation by Senator Foote, who will then take your questions.
The National Popular Vote would guarantee the Presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes across all 50 states and the District of Columbia. It was passed in 2019 by the Colorado state legislature, and signed into law by Governor Polis, and is now on the 2020 ballot for Colorado voters to approve.
Senator Foote was the legislative sponsor of the National Popular Vote bill, SB19-042. In 2018, Mike Foote was elected to represent Senate District 17, which covers eastern Boulder County. He currently serves as Chair of the State, Veterans, and Military Affairs Committee and is a member of the Appropriations Committee, Transportation and Energy Committee, and the Committee on Legal Services. He formerly served six years in the Colorado House of Representatives.
