How can candidates put kids first in next month’s election? How can you make your voice heard? Our 2018 Election Guide makes it easy to find child well-being data in your State House and State Senate districts. The guide includes questions you can ask candidates to find out how they plan to solve challenges such as child care shortages, a lack of health insurance coverage and inequitable school funding.

This is a pivotal year for kids as Colorado voters choose a new governor and dozens of new state and federal legislators. This cohort of new and returning policymakers will make decisions shaping the lives of children for years to come. We know from past elections that the earlier candidates, advocates and voters learn about issues facing kids, the more likely Colorado will see research-based policy change that benefits kids and makes an investment in our state.
