The last day to declare, change a party, or preference a party’s ballot is May 29, 2018. Whatever you are affiliated with as of May 30th is what ballot you will be receiving in the mail for this Primary Election.  You cannot make changes after this time.

Unaffiliated Electors:

However, Unaffiliated electors with NO ballot preference will get both a Republican and Democratic ballot in the mail but, can only vote ONE of them and send that ONE back. They can destroy the one that they don’t vote.  If both ballots are voted and returned to the Prowers County Clerk’s Office neither ballot will be counted.

If Unaffiliated electors preference by May 29th that will be the specific party’s ballot that they will receive by mail. Preferencing a specific party’s ballot early on will be a savings to the taxpayers’ because only one ballot will be sent and not two.
