Join the ACS Colorado Lawyer Chapter, Colorado Common Cause, Indivisible Denver, and the Tattered Cover for a discussion and book signing with Professor Joshua Douglas on his new book, Vote for US: How to Take Back Our Elections and Change the Future of Voting.

Professor Douglas, an expert on our electoral system, examines these encouraging developments in his inspiring book about how regular Americans are working to take back their democracy, one community at a time.
