Empower your community: Make your voice heard this election season

Voting represents a powerful opportunity to ensure your voice reverberates through the halls of decision-making. This election season, the ballot is teeming with critical issues that directly impact our community. The decisions made in this election will shape the future of our education system, influencing aspects such as school safety, budget allocation and more.

Why DSST votes

DSST votes because it is an opportunity for us to make our voices heard. This election season has a myriad of issues on the ballot that impact our community. Both Denver and Aurora have three positions on the School Board up for election. School Boards make critical decisions concerning school safety, opening and closing schools and budgets, among other topics. Statewide measures on the ballot increase school funding for early childhood and K-12 education. You can learn more about those measures here, or you can consult the blue books that were mailed to all registered voters in September. Finally, go to to commit to vote and find out information about registering to vote, reasons to vote, and dates for student-led school board forums.
