Colorado

In 2018, Coloradans approved constitutional ballot initiatives creating two independent citizen-led redistricting commissions—one for congressional districts and one for state legislative districts. Democrats have had trifecta control since 2019, but unlike in other states where Republican trifecta control has led to anti-democratic, heavily gerrymandered maps, Colorado’s independent commissions have protected the fairness of the state’s redistricting process. As a result, the new congressional and state legislative districts reflect the political competitiveness of the state. Colorado is a Democracy Target in 2022—it is crucial that we preserve a state Senate majority that is committed to protecting the state’s independent redistricting commissions and fair elections in the state.

How Our Fight Continues

Thanks to the grassroots movement for fair maps, we have maps in place that are far more fair than they would have been if Republicans had been allowed to gerrymander unchecked this past redistricting cycle. But if the last few years have shown us anything, it’s that our fight to protect free and fair elections is far from over. Redistricting has always been part of the larger fight to protect our democracy. The stakes are far too high to stand by the sidelines.
