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

I’m so tired of seeing all the "free admission/ice cream/taco with an ‘I voted’ sticker" deals. Do all these businesses realize that 60 percent of all Coloradans voted early, most by mail?

And if you voted by mail in Denver, you did not get an "I Voted" sticker unless you delivered it by hand. (Some other metro counties, such as Jefferson, included stickers with their ballots.) That means that early Denver voters like myself are completely cut out of all the free deals described in this blog.

Stick it, Denver. -- Nancy Levine

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.
