Public Improvement and Special District Ballot Issues: Boulder County 2013 Coordinated Election

Friday, October 11, 2013

Two public improvement districts and five special districts are coordinating with Boulder County for the Nov. 5, 2013, coordinated election. Public Improvement and 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. 5 election?

Public Improvement Districts:
Special Districts:
Which voters are eligible to participate in the public improvement district elections?
1. A resident of the district registered to vote at an address in the district. 
2. A Colorado registered voter who owns taxable real or personal property in the district and their registered voter spouse. 
3. A Colorado registered voter who is obligated to pay taxes under a contract to purchase taxable property within the district.
4. A Colorado registered voter appointed by a corporate entity or trust owner of taxable real or personal property to vote on its behalf.

Which voters are eligible to participate in the special district elections?
1. A resident of the district registered to vote at an address in the district. 
2. A Colorado registered voter who owns taxable real or personal property in the district and their registered voter spouse.
3. A Colorado registered voter who is obligated to pay taxes under a contract to purchase taxable property within 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 public improvement and/or special district issue on their regular ballot.

Property owners who live outside the district, and representatives of entities or trusts, can contact the Boulder County Elections Division for more information on how to receive a ballot containing only the public improvement and/or special district issue if they or their designated voting representative are deemed eligible. Our office also sent a letter to these voters/entities in early October notifying them they may be eligible to participate in the election. The landowner mail ballot will arrive beginning the week of Oct. 14 in a green envelope to distinguish it from the white ballot envelopes used for standard mail ballots. 

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