Boulder County Democratic Party
Vote Smart’s mission is to provide free, factual, unbiased information on candidates and elected officials to all Americans. The New York Times has said “Experts nearly all recommend Vote Smart.” On 9/2, Richard Kimball, President of Vote Smart, will join us tell us why Facts Matter. His presentation will include:
• A brief history of the Founding Fathers’ intent regarding an informed electorate
• The increasing trend of candidates to move people emotionally instead of intellectually
• A demonstration of how you can easily access accurate information about candidates on the issues that are important to you.
• The crucial battle – facts, truth and reality versus manipulation, distortion and “fake news.”
In addition, supporting our elections theme, 2 candidates will join us:
– SOS Candidate, Jena Griswold, will talk about the role of the Secretary of State and how we can continue to improve elections in Colorado.
– AG Candidate, Phil Weiser, will talk about why the AG is important and why we need to elect a Democrat as AG to protect our environment and civil rights.
