ELECTION HISTORY INFORMATION:

How is the President really elected and what is the Electoral College?

When our founding fathers were writing the Constitution, they decided they wanted every state to have a role in national elections and did not want to leave it up to Congress or just part of the population consisting of the more populous states. 

So the Founding Fathers came up with a system of “electors” or pre-selected people from each state that ultimately elects the President and Vice President. 

Launch of Behavioral Health Data Management System on Track for Fall 2019

OBH has been working since 2013 in close collaboration with a wide range of stakeholders to standardize meaningful outcomes for the behavioral health system by selecting key data elements and to integrate historical substance use and mental health data collection across the state. Known as Colorado COMPASS, the new system will be live Oct. 1, 2019 and will replace the outgoing Colorado Client Assesment Record (CCAR) and Drug and Alcohol Coordinated Data System (DACODS). Learn more about next steps in the roll out, including the research and tools that went into creating Colorado COMPASS.
