Post-Election wrap up: member volunteers drive electoral victories

In the months leading up to the Nov. 2018 election, SEIU Local 105 members turned out in historic numbers to support candidates who endorsed the Working People’s Platform

We supported candidates like Jared Polis and Jason Crow, who will fight for working families. SEIU members across Colorado and our partners spent months leading up to the election knocking doors, making phone calls and sending text messages to voters.

In Colorado…
