Great Education Colorado is on a mission to drive educational excellence for all Colorado students through wise investments in Colorado’s public schools. Their vision is that all Colorado children-regardless of where they live or how they learn-graduate prepared to lead their best lives.

Great Education Colorado is urging residents to invest in the future and make a difference for all kids by registering and voting. Schools are the heart and soul of a community and school elections matter! Unbury that ballot, vote on 3B, and turn it in at the Saguache County Courthouse at 501 4th Street in Saguache, Colorado by 7:00 pm on Tuesday, November 7th. Ballots can be dropped off 24 hours a day in the voter dropbox located on the south side of the courthouse. If you have not received your ballot, you can get a replacement ballot at the courthouse during the business hours listed below. 

There is still time to register and vote! If you are not a registered voter, you can register and vote at the Saguache County Courthouse at 501 4th Street in Saguache, Colorado. Registration and voting hours are from 8:00 am-4:00 pm on Monday, November 6th and from 7:00 am-7:00 pm on Tuesday, November 7th.

Great Education Colorado encourages voters to unbury ballots and vote for 3B and Mountain Valley’s kids.

Step up for the children of our district, invest in the future, and make a difference. Vote!
