Using Powerful Digital Messaging to Clarify a Complex Ballot Issue
As part of its plan to adapt to its rapid pace of growth, the City of Denver proposed Ballot Initiative 2A, which would restructure the Department of Public Works and create the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure. While this is a much needed change in order for the city to prioritize transportation and update Denver's systems, there was much confusion about whether 2A would raise taxes (it wouldn't).
Through a concerted, comprehensive digital strategy, Effct was able to reach voters across the city and assure voters that a passing 2A would not involve a tax raise of any sort. As a result, over 75% of voters voted YES on 2A, clearing the path for the city to prioritize and modernize transportation in Denver.
