Colorado was the fourth state to allow online voter registration, in 2010, and the first to allow registration via smart phone or tablet, in 2012. 

The event at the Blair-Caldwell library was also hosted by the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. which was founded in 1913 and is the largest black sorority in the country.

Among those who participated in the voter-registration event were Patricia Shaver, chairwoman of the Arapahoe County Democratic Party; Kadisha Haynes, former chief of staff for the state Senate Democrats; Naquetta Ricks, 2014 candidate for CU Regent from District 7; and Denise Edwards and Peggy Wortham, who used to work for former Denver Mayor Wellington Webb.
