Deadline approaching for those wishing to change party affiliation for the June Primary

style="border-collapse: collapse; vertical-align: top;" valign="top">

Boulder County – This year the Democratic Party and Republican Party will have primary elections on Tuesday, June 28. Ballots begin to be mailed to voters on June 6. In order to participate in a party primary election, a voter must be registered with that party. Tuesday, May 31 is the last day for voters who are affiliated with a political party to change or withdraw their affiliation if they wish to vote in a different party’s primary election.

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 20, must request a ballot in person at a Voter Service and Polling Center (see www.BoulderCountyVotes.org for locations).

Boulder County voters are also encouraged to periodically check their voter registration to make sure it is up-to-date, especially if they have moved or have not voted in several years.

Voter registration can be verified online at www.BoulderCountyVotes.org. Voters can also visit the website to register to vote, view ballot content, and learn more about local elections. They can also call 303-413-7740 for more information or visit one of three Boulder County Clerk & 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.
