Ballots would look the same as they do now.
Any Colorado ballot using Approval Voting would have no layout differences from existing ballots. The change is in the instructions. Currently are told to “Vote for One Only”; Approval Voting permits votes for any and all candidates or choices. The assembly of and how an Approval Voting ballot is created is no different than any current choose-one plurality ballot. The Help America Vote Act required all elections systems to standardize what voters see and use. Currently, voters see a list of choices, but are asked to “Vote for One”, thus limiting voter expression. Using precisely the same ballot, Approval Voting would permit the voter to make more than one choice.
Colorado’s newest party is seeking citizens of the state to register to vote as Approval Voting Party members.
The Approval Voting Party has been established in Colorado. As a Qualified Political Organization we lack the ability to nominate candidates for the ballot until we achieve one-thousand registered voter members. The state reported 838 registered members at the end of July 2019 and the party was founded earlier this year.
On June 2nd of 2019 the first statewide convention was held in Denver.
