My Friends,

I fell short at the April 14th, 2018 Democratic Assembly and did not receive enough votes to make the primary ballot. However, on April 14th, 2018, I found my voice and place in the Democratic Party. I am grateful for the opportunity to have been a candidate for Governor of the great State of Colorado. I will use this opportunity to build future momentum for another shot at a Statewide office.

I thank the many volunteers and delegates who stood shoulder to shoulder with me on my journey. Thank you for the many emails that I have received since the assembly. I may have exited stage left temporarily, just know that I will be right back with you fighting for our values.

As you know, my speech at the State Assembly was a memorable one that pierced the consciousness of everyone one who attended. I have posted a video of my speech below and a PDF text version as well. Please share this video and speech with anyone you like. My speech displays leadership and the willingness to confront the truth that we sometimes hide within ourselves.

Please stay in - touch with me through social media or through my contact form on this website.

Again, thank you and see you soon. 

 - Erik Monroe Underwood

Underwood's Colorado Youth Voting Act - Gun Violence

Enough is enough, and enough! We need a new allies against special interest. Our politicians will not act against the NRA on common sense gun legislation. These students need political voting power behind them to take on the NRA and other special interest, and thus, I will introduce our very best weapon; our youth. I want Colorado to serve as a national model for the rest of our country. I am going to empower a constituency that the NRA will not be able to bully or corrupt. I introduce to you, The Colorado Youth Voting Act.

This State Voting Act is not just about the NRA. We need our youth engaged in the political process early on, so we can develop their civic duty to vote and participate in our democracy.

Erik Underwood will create a Department of Rural Affairs for Rural Coloradans.

Underwood says, "It’s not all about the Front Range, so many of our Coloradans are being left behind in opportunity, and face issues such as water rights, and eminent domain. I will not sell our public lands, and we will protect our environment!”

Underwood also says that a Department of Rural Affairs will focus squarely on rural issues, such as Broadband, and to give rural Coloradans a seat at the table; concerning their economic growth and prosperity.

Westword Article - Meet Erik Underwood...Running for Governor as a Democrat

Westword Article - 10/19/2017

Erik Underwood, a tech-industry pro who switched his party affiliation from Republican to Democrat after his 2016 run for the U.S. Senate fell short, is a candidate for Colorado governor in 2018. In the following in-depth conversation, Underwood talks about overcoming an impoverished childhood en route to a successful business career and the details of his ambitious agenda for the state......He left the Republican Party after Donald Trump earned the GOP's presidential nomination last year, but he stresses that he's always been a moderate — and he believes his positions on free college, immigration, hemp, criminal-justice reform, the repeal of the TABOR Amendment and more are capable of appealing to independents as well as voters on either side of the major-party political divide.

Get to know him better below.....
