Special District Ballot Issues: Boulder County 2012 General Election

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

Three special districts are coordinating with Boulder County for the Nov. 6, 2012, general election. Special district elections have slightly different voter eligibility rules. Here’s an explanation and some links to additional information.

Which districts are participating in the Nov. 6 election?

Which voters are eligible to participate?
  1. A resident of the district, for not less than thirty days, registered to vote at an address in the district.
  2. A Colorado registered voter and spouse who owns taxable real or personal property in the district, but does not reside on the property or in the district.
  3. A Colorado registered voter who is obligated to pay taxes under a contract to purchase taxable property within the district, but does not reside on the property or in the district.

How can someone know whether they’re eligible to vote on these issues?

Eligible voters who live in one of these districts will see the special district issue on their regular ballot.

Property owners who live outside the district can contact the Boulder County Elections Division to receive a ballot containing only the special district issue as long as they are registered to vote in Colorado. The mail ballot will arrive in a green envelope to distinguish it from the white ballot envelopes used for standard mail-in ballots. Our office also sent a letter to these voters in late September notifying them they may be eligible to participate in the election.

If you have questions about this, please call us at 303-413-7740 or email Joan Barilla at jbarilla@bouldercounty.org.
