Election Reminder for Unaffiliated Voters


UNAFFILIATED VOTERS: Recent changes in Colorado law now allow unaffiliated voters to vote in a primary election.  

Here is how it works:

  1. You will receive two ballots in your packet, one Democratic ballot and one Republican ballot.
  2. Choose ONLY ONE of these ballots and fill it out. Discard the ballot you  don’t use.
  3. Sign your return envelope and return your ONE voted ballot in the return envelope. Sending in two voted ballots will disqualify all of your votes. Your vote in this election will not affiliate you with a political party but it will be of public record for which one you chose to vote.

We highly recommend that you:

  • Drop your ballot off at the Prowers County Clerk & Recorder’s Office, 301 S. Main St., Ste. 210, Lamar, CO or,
  • Use the ballot drop box inside the courthouse on the table in front of the security entrance or,
  • Use the drive by/walk up ballot drop box located in the parking lot east side of the County Courthouse, open 24/7.     REMEMBER: Postmarks dates do not count. Your ballot must be in the possession of the Prowers County Clerk & Recorder by 7:00 P.M., June 26, 2018.
