Friends -

3 months ago, I was honored to be sworn in as the Boulder County Clerk and Recorder! It’s been a busy 3 months, but I am so proud of all that we have accomplished so far and I am looking forward to building on our foundation.

In January, our office engaged in a Strategic Planning Process to develop a 5 year vision with supporting goals and objectives. Staff from all levels participated in the process, and the result is a plan that will ensure our office continues to innovate, improve, and deliver results for Boulder County.

Key goals include:

Demonstrating inclusion in our election administration so that everyone’s voice is heard in the elections process

Developing our greatest asset - our people - through leadership and professional development opportunities while ensuring they understand how their work fulfills our larger mission of making Boulder County a better place for everyone

Doubling down on cybersecurity planning and office enhancements to protect your rights and your participation 

Preserving and protecting our recorded history while bringing this rich information to the public 

Continuing to build the Motor Vehicle Division of the 21st century with robust out-of-office services and a refreshed website.

I’ll keep you posted on our progress, and in the meantime, please feel free to reach out with any thoughts or questions.

Thanks, and we’ll talk soon!

Friends,

Thank you for electing me as your Democratic nominee for Boulder County Clerk and Recorder!

I am excited to let you know that voting has officially begun for the 2018 midterm elections! I hope to earn your vote for County Clerk and Recorder so I can continue fighting for statewide election reform that positively impacts all Coloradans, especially those that have been historically underrepresented in our democracy.

County Clerks across the state began mailing ballots to voters yesterday, so look for yours over the next few days.

Voters in Colorado have many options to return their ballots and can register to vote all the way through Election Day:

To vote → Voters can mail their ballot back in, drop it off at a drop box, or vote in person at any Voter Service and Polling Center (VSPC) in their county. VSPCs  are like one-stop shops where you can register to vote, vote, or request a replacement ballot. VSPC’s open on October 22 and the full list of VSPC’s in Boulder County can be found here.

To register to vote → Visit GoVoteColorado.com to check your voter registration status, update your voter registration, or register to vote for the first time. If you register to vote or update your voter registration by Oct. 29, you will still receive a ballot in the mail. If you do not register to vote by this date online, simply visit a VSPC in your county to register to vote and vote (remember – you can register to vote through Election Day in Colorado).

All ballots must be received by 7pm on Election Day – Tuesday, November 6, 2018 (postmarks don’t count!).

Visit BoulderCountyVotes.org for more information or reply to this email if you have questions. Thank you for being a voter!

Dear Friends,

I’m thrilled to announce that I have qualified as the only Democratic candidate for the June Primary ballot! I am so thankful to all my family, friends, volunteers, and supporters—I could not have done any of this without you. Thank you!

When I began this campaign, I spoke with my Democratic opponent, Raffi Mercuri. We agreed that both of our campaigns would focus on the issues, and it's because of passionate people in our community like Raffi that we're having the conversation about full voter participation and social justice in elections. Both of these are crucial to bringing more people into our democracy, and I look forward to working with Raffi on these and many more progressive issues.

As County Clerk, I pledge to continue my work of bringing more people into the political process—especially those who have been historically underrepresented in our elections. Voting is a powerful tool we have to influence our community and I look forward to working with you to ensure everyone has access and confidence in our elections.

I would love to hear your ideas, so please don't hesitate to reach out! 

With gratitude,

Molly Fitzpatrick

Friends –

I’m thrilled to share that I have filed to run for Boulder County Clerk and Recorder!

I’m running because accessible elections are the cornerstone of a healthy democracy. For the last 9 years, I’ve worked to increase election access and to ensure that every eligible voter can confidently navigate our elections system.

As County Clerk, I want to continue this work on behalf of all members of Boulder County—especially those who have been historically underrepresented in our elections. Together, we can work for more secure, representative elections and more efficient, responsive services that strengthen our community.

The County Clerk manages elections, motor vehicle, and recording services—and while my experience is in elections, I’m committed to ensuring that all divisions continue to offer first-class service to everyone in Boulder County.  

As the office that interacts with the public more than almost any other government function, we have an opportunity to build trust and good faith in our government, which ultimately creates a stronger democracy.

What’s next:

This campaign is about ensuring our elections and services are more accessible, inclusive, and secure for everyone in Boulder County. Can you show your support by making a contribution of any amount right now? I am so grateful for your support and look forward to working on your behalf to strengthen and protect our elections!
