All about U — and amazing harmony

Here’s to the talented Downey sisters. They didn’t just decorate a wooden U, they sang that old Schoolhouse Rock favorite, “We the people.”

Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams is handing out the wooden U’s as part of the UChooseCO campaign to help educate unaffiliated voters that they can participate in the June 26 primary election, but they can only vote one ballot. The campaign has a web pageFacebook page, a Twitter account and its own hashtag, #UChooseCO.

The singers — Cate, 17, Ella, 13, and Meg, 10 — are the daughters of Tom Downey and Lori Fox of Denver. The couple is not only known for their singing daughters but also for their amazing Halloween costumes — in 2012 he was Clint Eastwood and she was the chair! Their girls sing all over the state, including the upcoming Bohemian Nights  Music festival in Fort Collins. They also have a long history of performing at Swallow Hill Music.

At least every week day between now and the June 26 primary the Secretary of State’s office will highlight a wooden U or two. Check out more decorated U’s on Facebook and Twitter.
