ARE YOU PREPARED TO FULLY PARTICIPATE IN THE 2018 ELECTIONS?
Thanks to Proposition 108 Colorado’s 1 million unaffiliated voters no longer have to register with a political party to participate in non-presidential primary elections. However, if you want to help select the party candidates who will appear on the primary ballots in June, you MUST affiliate with the party of your candidate choice by January 8, 2018. Below are four state offices for which elections will be held in November of 2018. Click on each header below to review the candidates currently running for these offices. If you find a candidate you like, make sure you are registered with the candidate's party before January 8, if you want to participate in the party caucuses for that candidate.
