All about U — and Mesa County’s Sheila Reiner

A closer look at the Mesa County clerk’s wooden U.

Here’s to Mesa County Clerk Sheila Reiner, whose office was the first to decorate a wooden U and the first to host a UChooseCO event, complete with an 8-foot yellow U.

Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams handed out the wooden U’s as part of the UChooseCO campaign to help inform unaffiliated voters that for the first time they can participate in Tuesday’s primary election, and to remind them they can only vote one ballot. If they vote both, neither will count.

Like so many other clerks, scenery inspired how the Mesa County wooden U was decorated. Rose Tayofa in the clerk’s recording division decorated the U.

Here are some — but not all — of the wooden U’s from other county clerks:

Adams County Clerk Stan Martin
Broomfield Clerk Jim Candelarie
Chaffee County Clerk Lori Mitchell
Cheyenne County Clerk Pat Daugherty
Eagle County Clerk Regina O’Brien
La Plata County Clerk Tiffany Parker
Logan County Clerk Pam Bacon
Moffat County Clerk Lila Herold
Montrose County Clerk Tressa Guynes
Routt County Clerk Kim Bonner
Summit County Clerk Kathleen Neel
Weld County Clerk Carly Koppes

The UChooseCO campaign has a web pageFacebook page, a Twitter account and its own hashtag, #UChooseCO. Check out more decorated U’s on Facebook and Twitter and this blog.
