Deadline Approaching to Switch Parties and Participate in Primary Election; Special Notice to Longmont Unaffiliated Voters
 
Boulder County, Colo. – This year, the American Constitution Party, Democratic Party, and Republican Party will have Primary Elections on Tuesday, June 24. In order to participate in a party primary election, a voter must be registered with that party. Friday, May 23 is the deadline for those voters who are currently registered with a political party to switch to another political party and still participate in this year’s Primary. Unaffiliated voters may affiliate up to and including Election Day; however, the Boulder County Clerk and Recorder’s Office encourages affiliation sooner, in order to receive your mail ballot in a timely fashion. Unaffiliated voters who change their registration after June 16, must request a ballot in person at a Voter Service and Polling Center (see www.BoulderCountyVotes.org for locations).
 
Additionally, Primary Election ballots are typically only mailed to voters who are affiliated with a participating political party. However, the City of Longmont is conducting a Special Election in conjunction with the 2014 Primary Election. All City of Longmont voters will be receiving a ballot with the Longmont question regardless of party affiliation.

If you are a City of Longmont resident who is interested in participating in a party primary, and you are either an Unaffiliated Voter or are unaware of your party registration, the Boulder County Clerk and Recorder’s Office strongly encourages you to check your voter registration. This way, you can affiliate with the party of your choice or update your voter registration prior to ballots getting mailed. Ballots will be mailed on June 2.

Boulder County voters can visit www.BoulderCountyVotes.org to register to vote, check and update their voter registration and view primary ballot content. They can also call 303-413-7740 for more information or visit one of three Boulder County Clerk and Recorder's Office branches: 1750 33rd St. in Boulder; 529 Coffman St. in Longmont; or 1376 Miners Drive in Lafayette. Office hours are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

  • Friday, May 23:  Deadline to change party affiliation from one party to another in order to participate in the Primary Election
