Every eligible voter, Democrat, Republicans, and Unaffiliated alike, deserves to have a voice in the future of our state." -Jena Griswold

about jena Griswold

Jena Griswold has long been passionate about working on behalf of Coloradans. As an attorney, Jena has worked to ensure that Colorado elections are accessible to all eligible voters. She served her home state as Director of the Colorado Governor’s Washington, D.C. Office, where she helped secure federal disaster recovery funding to help the state recover from the devastating 2013 flood. She then opened her own practice in Colorado.

In July 2017, just as President Trump’s sham Voter Commission started to collect personal data on Colorado voters, Jena announced her candidacy to become Colorado’s next Secretary of State. Jena grew up in Estes Park and now lives in Louisville.


The Issues

 Jena Griswold is running to ensure Colorado remains strong. As Secretary of State, she plans to:

  • Protect every eligible citizen’s right to vote
  • Increase voter participation by expanding automatic voter registration.
  • Bolster our state’s cybersecurity and guard against foreign interference in our elections.
  • Fight to get dark money out of our politics and increase campaign finance transparency.
  • Support small businesses and entrepreneurs.

Jena will stand up to President Trump, to protect Coloradans’ right to vote and to defend Coloradans’ right to privacy.  Trump established a “Commission on Election Integrity,” claiming millions of illegal votes were cast in the last election. There is absolutely no proof of this. The Commission serves as a pretext to spread the Trump Administration’s falsehoods, and worse, represents an effort to weaken our voting rights. Colorado must resist any attempts by President Trump to disenfranchise voters. As Secretary of State, Jena will stand up against the Trump Administration, and protect Coloradans’ right to vote.

Jena plans to build a more transparent government by making it easier to see dark money’s role in our elections and by supporting a law to require presidential candidates to release their tax returns to get on the Colorado ballot. She will also make the Secretary of State’s Office a resource center for new businesses and entrepreneurs.  

Jena knows that voting is the cornerstone of our democracy, and she is committed to ensuring that every eligible Coloradan can vote.  As Secretary of State, Jena will fight to make Colorado a place where everyone has the opportunity to succeed.
