Last Chance to Vote: YES on EE

Written by: Children's Campaign
Date Posted: October 30, 2020

There are only three days left to vote! If you haven’t turned in your ballot yet, we want to remind you to vote YES on EE, the tobacco-vape tax for preschool. This proposition gives Coloradans a chance to improve child well–being by making long-term investments in programs that improve health and educational outcomes.

Prop EE will close the tax loophole on vape and nicotine products and bring Colorado’s tax on cigarettes and tobacco in line with other states. The revenue generated will be invested in education and public health:

  • Mitigating cuts to K-12 funding caused by the pandemic,
  • Expanding preschool to ensure every 4 year old gets a strong start in their education and
  • Funding critical health programs designed to prevent addiction and to help individuals who smoke and vape to quit.

The Colorado Children’s Campaign is proud to be part of a large, diverse, statewide coalition of organizations supporting Prop EE.  Join us! And support Colorado’s kids by casting your ballot with a YES on EE vote.

And don’t forget to vote NO on Propositions 116 and 117

As families and small businesses across Colorado are struggling with the COVID-19 crisis and economic challenges brought on by the virus, voters will see two measures that could make it all much harder. Propositions 116 and 117 are a double whammy blow against our state budget. These measures will force our state to cut key services and funding for priorities like early childhood education, K-12 education, housing and health care. These measures will force cuts out of the gate and they will hamstring Colorado’s path to an economic recovery from the COVID-19 crisis.
