Independent Principled Leadership

I’m honored to serve the people of Colorado as their Secretary of State and will work hard to ensure that Colorado continues to have the fairest, most honest, and most open elections. I look forward to working together with leaders in the business and non-profit communities to ensure that the Secretary of State’s office meets the needs of Coloradans and continues our role as a national leader.
-Wayne Williams
Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams isn’t the loudest or most attention-seeking elected official you’ll ever meet, but he might be the most effective public servant in our state.
Since winning his first statewide campaign in 2014, Wayne has transformed his often-overlooked but deeply important office into a nationally-recognized model of efficiency, competence and professionalism. In doing so, he has remained committed to embracing fiscally conservative solutions to Colorado’s most pressing needs, and has helped deliver real, noticeable results for the people of our state while saving taxpayers millions of dollars in the process.
This summer, when Wayne was reappointed to serve on the executive board of the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS), Vermont Secretary of State Jim Condos (D), the president of NASS, said, “I’ve seen firsthand how Wayne Williams has worked across the aisle to bring people together. Wayne works with both Democrats and Republicans to protect our nation’s elections and to ensure the right to vote. That why I asked him to serve again on the NASS executive board.”
