Colorado Newsline: Colorado bill would improve access for eligible incarcerated voters

While most people held in county jails have the right to vote, few actually do

Hunter Nelson, political chair at Colorado Black Women for Political Action, cited a 2020 study from Colorado Common Cause that found most people in Colorado jails are eligible to vote, but the infrastructure and accessibility differing from county to county makes it difficult to know what to do. “All Coloradans deserve the right to vote and deserve access to the information needed to make informed voting decisions, including Black women and people who are being held in county jails and detention centers during an election cycle across our state,” Nelson said.
