The Elections Division will hold the Candidate Lot Draw at 9 a.m. on July 26 to determine the order in which all County-level candidates will appear on General Election ballots.
The randomized process involves drawing a token representing each major political party from a box, hat or other non-transparent container for each County office on the November 8 General Election ballot. Whichever token is drawn first dictates which party’s candidate will appear first on Arapahoe County ballots for that particular office.
According to Colorado law, all major party candidates for each office are listed first, followed by any candidates nominated by minor political parties. Video of the event will be livestreamed on the Clerk and Recorder Facebook page.
