Election 2020: The most important thing you can do is exercise your right to vote!

IECRM cares about Workforce Development, Labor & Employment Issues, and Economic & Infrastructure Investments. Another thing we care about is Voting.

The IECRM Government Relations Committee and Board of Directors work throughout the year on policy and advocacy issues that impact the construction industry, electrical trade and general business. The Committee has been active this year getting to know legislative candidates and understanding the impacts of initiatives on the 2020 ballot.

The IECRM 2020 Election Guide serves as an education resource for our more than 250 trade association electrical contractor member companies, industry partners and their employees. The goal is to ensure that the electrical contracting industry voice – and individual voice – is heard and counted as we cast our ballots for candidates and initiatives in the 2020 federal, state and local elections.

The IECRM 2020 Election Guide Contains five sections: 

  • Voting in Colorado
  • Ballot Initiatives
  • Legislative Candidate Endorsements
  • PAC Fund
  • Post-Election Next Steps
