House OKs Melton’s Campus Voter Registration Bill

(March 1) – A bill by Rep. Jovan Melton (D-Aurora) to increase voter registrations on campuses in Colorado received preliminary House approval today.

HB13-1147 requires public colleges and universities to provide students who are registering for classes with information on how to access the state’s online voter registration website.

“It’s more than just a convenience for students,” Rep. Melton said. “It’s one more way we can increase voter participation. Democracy works best when everyone joins in the process.”
