(Lamar, CO) May 4, 2022 – The Prowers County Hospital District Board of Director Election was conducted on Tuesday, May 3, 2022. “Unofficial” results are in as we wait for the absentee ballots associated with the Uniformed And Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA). These ballots must be received by May 11th. An “official” count on ballots received will be published as soon as that process is complete.

The terms of office for three (3) of the current Board members are set to expire in May 2022. There are two (2) Director seats available for serving a term of three (3) years each and one Director seat available for serving a term of one (1) year.
