At HICCUP, our mission is to promote democracy through transparency, champion election integrity, and empower citizens to participate fully in the democratic process. We are committed to ensuring fair representation, fostering trust in elections, and upholding democratic principles in Chaffee County and beyond.
As a nonpartisan group, HICCUP is dedicated to holding government officials accountable for their actions and advocating for the highest standards of ethics and transparency in the electoral process. We firmly believe that a healthy democracy thrives when citizens have confidence in the integrity of their elections, allowing them to make informed decisions that impact their communities.
Our core objectives are as follows:
1. Election Integrity Advocacy: HICCUP works tirelessly to advocate for transparent and accountable election processes. We closely monitor election procedures and engage with election officials and policymakers to implement best practices that safeguard against potential vulnerabilities.
2. Citizen Empowerment: We believe that an informed and engaged citizenry is essential to the success of any democracy. HICCUP actively seeks to empower citizens by providing them with accurate and reliable information about the electoral process, their voting rights, and the importance of their participation in shaping the future of their community.
3. Reporting Election Violations: As a watchdog organization, HICCUP diligently investigates and documents any instances of election violations, fraud, or opaqueness. When necessary, we promptly report our findings to the Secretary of State, District Attorney, and County Sheriff, ensuring that appropriate actions are taken to address and rectify any identified issues.
4. Nonpartisan Approach: HICCUP maintains a strict nonpartisan stance, ensuring that our work remains objective and unbiased. We collaborate with individuals and groups across the political spectrum, united by our commitment to a fair and inclusive democratic process.
5. Community Engagement: We recognize that the strength of democracy lies in its ability to engage diverse voices and perspectives. HICCUP actively seeks to foster dialogue and collaboration with community members, local organizations, and government agencies to create a more robust democratic framework.
By pursuing these objectives, HICCUP aims to build trust in elections and strengthen democratic principles in Chaffee County and the wider region we serve. We envision a future where citizens are confident that their votes count, their voices are heard, and their democratic rights are protected.
