WHEW. Hey Denver residents! This year’s ballot is a doozie.

Your ballot should now be in your hands, but if it hasn’t made its way to you yet, you can track it using Ballot Trace. Oct. 26 is the LAST DAY you can mail in your ballot.
If you’d rather drop your ballot off or vote in-person, you can find the closest drop box or election site on the Denver Elections Division website. If you aren’t registered to vote yet, you have until Oct. 26 to register by mail or online. But, Colorado is one of the states where you can register up to and even on Election Day! After Oct. 26, you’ll have to register in-person at an election site. You have until 7 p.m. Nov. 3 to do so.

We launched Ms. Mayhem in May, shortly after my mother passed away. Covering the pandemic and protests have been scary and emotionally taxing.

This year has thrown everything it has at me, and I know many others that feel the same. It’s a never-ending circle of shit.
But standing thigh-deep in the river I share a name with, my brain stopped working at 1,000 miles an hour.

We cover major stories from perspectives that are rarely seen from more mainstream outlets. Our team looks forward to reporting on femme and non-binary identifying people in all walks of life, from sex work to the military; from tattooing and skateboarding to the STEM industry. We’ll be reporting right from the middle of the intersection of gender, sexuality, class, ability and race.
We are in the process of planning a virtual launch party. If you’re interested in attending, sign up for updates here.
See you soon!
