2024 ELECTION INFORMATION
State primary is Tuesday, June 25th, 2024
Be a voter - vote in the state primary!

WHY SHOULD I VOTE IN THE STATE PRIMARY?

1. There's only 1 contested race in the Democratic primary - CU Regent At-Large. This is a very important position. The winner of the primary will go up against the Republican candidate in November.

2. In addition to CU Regent A-L, we have Democratic candidates running for CD3; CU Regent for CD3; SBOE (State Board of Ed) for CD3; SD6; District Attorney for JD22 (the 1st Dem to run in 24+ years); and HDs 58 and 59. Their performance in the primary will help shape their strategies for the general election. Your vote for them is recognition of their commitment to our Democratic principles.

3. Voting in the primary helps the Montezuma County Dems because we know we can count on you to vote in the general election and don't have to knock on your door or call you. 

4. Voting is a privilege and a responsibility - vote in every election.

OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Unaffiliated voters may vote either the Democratic or Republican ballot, but not both! If you return both, neither will count.

Please only put one ballot per envelope. If you lose your envelope you can go to the County Clerk's office and get another one.

Don't forget to sign your ballot envelope!

Don't sign anyone else's ballot for them - it's illegal! 

Speaking of signatures, be sure and use your most "common" signature - perhaps the one you used on your driver's license. If the signature on record for you doesn't match what's on your envelope, your ballot is flagged. A bipartisan team of election judges then compares your signatures to see if they are similar enough to "pass" and have your ballot accepted. If the judges think the signatures are too different, you'll get a letter or notification from the county clerk to verify that you signed your ballot yourself. You can go in person to fix this or use the program called text2cure.
