The March for Science is a grassroots, all volunteer organized event, meant as a celebration of our passion for science and a call to support and safeguard the scientific community. Recent policy suggestions and changes have caused heightened worry among scientists, and the incredible and immediate outpouring of support has made clear that these concerns are also shared by countless people around the world. Mischaracterization of science as a partisan issue is a critical and urgent matter, one that too often has given policymakers cover to reject overwhelming evidence. The March for Science – while non-partisan – is openly political in its call for peer-reviewed evidence based policy. Now is the time for people who support scientific research, science education, and evidence-based policies to take a public stand and be counted.
2018 Midterm Elections
The midterm elections are imminent. Denver March for Science strongly encourages all who are eligible to exercise your right to vote. Make your voice heard!
In Colorado, resident citizens age 18 or older can register to vote in advance of the election and even on Election Day itself, November 6, 2018. Visit the state voter registration website to register to vote, or to verify or update your record. Mail ballots are sent to voters registered by October 29, 2018. You may mail your completed ballot with proper postage (must be received by November 6, 2018) or drop it off at a polling location (no postage required). Be sure to sign the envelope in the space indicated. If you do not receive a mail ballot, lose it, make a mistake while completing it, or prefer to vote the traditional way, you may instead vote in person at an official polling location. When voting in person, you must bring an acceptable form of identification.
If you live outside Colorado, visit the National Voter Registration Day website.
