Ballots for the 2017 Coordinated Election will be mailed today to more than 322,000 active registered voters in Arapahoe County. You are eligible to vote in this election if you live in one of 18 municipalities, school districts or special districts with a race or question on the ballot. Approximately 55,000 active voters live outside these jurisdictions and will not receive a ballot. There are no county, state or federal questions this year.
“The 2017 Election is all about local questions and races that impact voters’ daily lives,” said Clerk and Recorder Matt Crane. “Your input is critical to help shape your city or town, schools, parks and rec centers, fire department or sanitation district. Every vote counts, and we encourage eligible voters to cast a ballot.”
The jurisdictions with a race or question on the ballot include:
- Cities and Towns: City of Aurora, City of Centennial, City of Englewood, City of Greenwood Village, City of Littleton, City of Sheridan, Town of Foxfield, and
