Your Vote Matters!
YWCA Boulder County Ballot Measure Positions
As a 501c3 tax-exempt organization, YWCA Boulder County is non-partisan and takes positions on issues, not candidates.
Amendment 76 — Citizenship Qualification of Voters
OPPOSE: This measure intends to suppress votes, including denying voter registration for 17-year-olds, and to inflame anti-immigration sentiment.
Proposition 115 — Prohibit Abortions After 22 Weeks
OPPOSE: No exceptions for health of mother, rape or incest. Undermines women’s economic empowerment and sovereignty of own bodies.
Proposition 118 — Paid Family and Medical Leave Insurance Program
SUPPORT: Promotes women’s economic empowerment, as women are often the primary caretakers.
Be sure to vote your entire ballot! Local contests and issues are critical.
