What will be on the Democratic & Republican Ballots for 2018 June Primary Election?

    • State of Colorado: Candidates for Representative to the 116 United States Congress District 4, Governor, Secretary of State, State Treasurer, Attorney General, State Board of Education Member Congressional District 4, Regent of the University of Colorado At Large, and State Representative District 64
    • Prowers County: Candidates for County Commissioner District 2, County Clerk and Recorder, County Treasurer, County Assessor, County Sheriff, and County Coroner New this year
    • Tips for Mail Ballots:
    • If Unaffiliated electors preference specific party’s ballot then that’s the only party ballot they will receive by mail. Preferencing a specific party’s ballot early on will be a cost savings to the taxpayers’ because only one ballot will be sent and not two. Also, for every Primary Election Year Unaffiliated electors will have to preference a ballot style each time.
    • Unaffiliated Electors will now receive both Democratic and Republican Ballots in the mail for this Primary election. Unaffiliated electors may choose which ballot they want to vote, send that ONE voted ballot back to the Prowers County Clerk’s Office and can destroy the other unvoted ballot. If both ballots are voted and returned to the Prowers County Clerk’s Office neither ballot will be counted.
    • You will receive a ballot, secrecy sleeve, and a return envelope.
    • Select candidates you wish to vote for.
    • Use a Black pen that will not bleed through the paper to vote your ballot.
  • Completely fill in the oval next to the selection you want to vote for.
  • If you don’t want to vote the entire ballot, you can leave any part of the ballot blank and it will still be counted.
  • After marking your ballot, place it inside the secrecy sleeve and place them both inside the return envelope that is addressed to the Prowers County Clerk and Recorder, 301 S. Main Street, Ste. 210, Lamar.
  • Make very sure before mailing or delivering your voted ballot that you have signed the signature affidavit spot on the back side of your return envelope. This is required in order for your ballot to be processed. We must compare every signature on the return envelopes to make sure that the intended voter was the one who signed it.
  • You may either deliver or mail your ballot to the Prowers County Clerk and Recorder’s Office. If you mail your ballot, correct postage is required for delivery. Ballots must be received by 7:00 p.m., Election Night (June 26, 2018) in order to be counted. Postmark dates do not count as received.
