Why did some candidates not respond to the Voters’ Guide questionnaire?
We do not know why some of the candidates failed to respond to the questionnaire for their race. What we do know is that every candidate included in the Voters’ Guide had a fair and equal opportunity to respond. Candidates were contacted repeatedly by phone, U.S. mail and email using the contact information they provided to the Colorado Secretary of State and/or through their campaigns. We were able to extend the deadline to respond so ample time was given to everyone. Responses were accepted online, by fax, email or mail.
What if an issue that is important to me is not covered in the Voters’ Guide?
This nonpartisan, educational publication was designed to cover a wide range of issues of importance to Coloradans. However, if there is an issue of importance to you that was not included, you may contact the candidates directly regarding your issues or concerns.
