Re: Don't Give Our Votes for President to California and New York

We would like to express our deep concern with your decision to commit Colorado's Electoral Votes to the winner of the national popular vote; a candidate who might not win the most votes in Colorado.

We are in agreement with many other county commissioners and Colorado residents that the people of Colorado should determine who receives Colorado's votes for President. Under no circumstance should Colorado's votes for President and Vice-President be determined by voters in other states. Of particular concern is the fact that your reliance on the national popular vote naturally skews away from states with modest populations and toward states like California and New York, which have a severe population advantage over states like Colorado.

We firmly believe that it is in the best interest of our state and the Constituents we represent that Colorado's electoral votes be allocated solely to the Presidential candidate and Vice-Presidential candidate who win the popular vote in Colorado!

We strongly support the petition filed to keep Colorado's electoral votes in Colorado by setting aside Senate Bill 042 and putting it to a vote of the people in the November 2020 general election.

Sincerely,

Kiowa County Commissioners
