Election season is upon us, with lots of important candidates and issues on the ballot.


In this video, Miss Pat, everyone's favorite kindergarten teacher shows you how easy it easy to register to vote. Or, if you've moved, to check your voter registration to make sure it's up to date. You can find other Miss Pat videos on Tik Tok and Facebook courtesy of the League of Women Voters of Larimer County. 

Click the button below to register to vote in Colorado, or to change your registration. You can update your name, address, phone number (I removed mine ;}), and party affiliation. 



I have orbited the sun 66 times. 

I am an elder. 

I am pro-aging.

I am aging proactively.

I go by she or they. I kind of like calling everyone they, always have. Grade school teachers used to correct me on that all the time.

I am married (45 years to more-or-less the same guy), have two adult children and six grandchildren.

I am pro-people. All are welcome here. I mean it.


I talk about aging and how we can do it well, religion and politics, race, gender and sexual orientation issues.

I'm going to try to trigger you. But my provocation is meant to further discussion in order so that we may both grow and learn.
