DENVER, CO- Denver Clerk Paul López traveled to Denver the second week in January to attend the Joint Elections Officials Conference.

During his time at the conference, he also met with U.S. Senators John Hickenlooper and Michael Bennet, as well as Congresswoman Yadira Caraveo to discuss the need for support for critical elections infrastructure ahead of the 2024 presidential election cycle, one of the topline items in the budget.

Clerk López encouraged leaders to work to ensure this legislation is passed as it is crucial to the security and voter access of elections across the nation.  “Now more than ever, protecting access to the ballot box, and the people who make democracy work is paramount. Our democracy depends on it,” Clerk López says.

Joining the Clerk on his trip was his 16-year-old daughter Nayeli, who shadowed him on Capitol Hill. He shares, “my daughter is active in our democracy and leader within her own right. She joined him as they heard briefings from various agencies and met with national leaders as they discussed the future of our democracy.  “It’s my hope that she will continue to be confident and steadfast in the presence of those who hold power.”
