Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

If you haven't voted yet, stop reading now and do so: You can drop off your ballot until 7 p.m. tonight, and if you don't have your ballot, you can go to one of the city's 25 vote centers and get a replacement. For that matter, under the state's new voting laws you can still register to vote for two more hours.

That new voting law helps explain why so many Democratic politicians showed up at the Auraria campus at noon today to get out the vote.

Also campaigning on campus were Jonny 5, aka Jamie Laurie, the Flobots musician and activist, and Kalyn Heffernan of Wheelchair Sports Camp, who were encouraging students to simply get out and vote.

If you've already voted, keep reading for a look at the action. If not, come back after you have.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
