Election Information: for Unaffiliated Voters




If you want to change your political party affiliation or withdraw from your party the last day to make those changes is May 29, 2018 providing you want to vote in a different party’s primary election. After said date whatever party you are affiliated with is the ballot you will get in the mail to vote.

As an alternative, unaffiliated voters may declare a “ballot preference” before June 26 Primary Election at: www.govotecolorado.com and receive only one ballot for their preferred party. This would conserve taxpayer dollars, because counties will not pay printing and postage costs to send two ballots. For more information regarding the unaffiliated voter process you can search Uchoose.co.gov

Does selecting a ballot preference as an unaffiliated voter mean that I am joining that party?

No.   An unaffiliated voter who selects a ballot preference in advance of a primary election will remain unaffiliated.

Does voting in a party’s primary as an unaffiliated voter mean that I am joining that party?

No.   An unaffiliated voter who votes in a party’s primary will remain unaffiliated. However, the primary that you vote in will be a public record (but not how you voted).

If I select a ballot preference do I have to select a ballot preference before each Primary?

Yes.   Ballot preference is only good for one Primary; you will need to select a preference each time.

The link below is the information available to the public with details on how Unaffiliated voters can participate in the Primary Election.
