Municipal Elections
The Town holds a Municipal Election to elect a Mayor and Members of the Board of Trustees on the first Tuesday of April in even numbered years. These elections may be held as Mail Ballot - where all voting takes place on ballots sent to you through the mail, or as Polling Place - where you vote in a location designated by the town, using paper ballots that are marked by voters and placed in a ballot box.

Voter Registration
The office of the Colorado Secretary of State oversees voter registration. You can register to vote, change your address, or check your information at the Colorado Secretary of State.
