LETTER: Support the popular vote


DEAR EDITOR: I recently saw this video about how paid petition gatherers used deceptive methods to get enough signatures to put the popular vote on the ballot. You can see it for yourself right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-HhzLnanI8 or search YouTube for “NPV Colorado Signature Scam”.

I am just livid over this because I am one of the people who was approached by these scammers!

I support the popular vote for President, for which I’m thankful the Governor and the Legislature passed into law. It’s outrageous that my own signature was almost on a petition calling for it to be put on the ballot, where it might be in jeopardy of being repealed!

I want all my fellow Coloradans to be aware of the scam that has led to the popular vote being put on the ballot. Join me in fighting back against the scammers. Vote YES to keep the popular vote for President.
