ACCESO Spanish Language Voting Advisory Board endorsed the position of Denver Clerk & Recorder Debra Johnson in favor of House Bill 1303 that created the Voter Access & Modernized Elections Act sponsored by Representatives Hullinghorst/Pabon and Senator Giron because it modernizes elections to reflect the way people vote.
ACCESO is the Spanish word for "access." It is also the informal name for the Elections Division's Spanish Language Voting Advisory Board.
This group was formed to assist the Clerk and Recorder and the Elections Director in their outreach efforts to Denver's limited-English, Spanish-speaking citizens. Central goals include making voting materials more accessible, ensuring an adequate number of Spanish-speaking poll workers, and increasing voting participation. More information on ACCESO.
