Special District Election Changes

In 2018, the State of Colorado passed a law changing Special District elections from even years to odd years.  The new law moves the regular Special District elections to May of each odd-numbered years beginning in May 2023 and, in connection therewith, adjusts the length of terms served by Directors elected in 2020 and 2022; during the transition, a three-year term is considered a full term.  The 2022 election will be the last even-year election, after which the transition to odd-year elections will be complete. The first odd-year election will be in 2023, at which time full terms will again be four-year terms.

If you have other questions, contact Catherine Hayes, Designated Election Official ( or 970-476-7480). You can also register to vote or update your information on the Secretary of State website.
