The State of Colorado holds regularly scheduled state elections every two years; a state Primary Election in June and a General Election in November.
The nominated candidates from each party’s primary ballot will be placed on the November General Election ballot. The winner of the November General Election will hold office.
No, but you can if you want to. You have several options:
No. An unaffiliated voter who selects a ballot preference in advance of a primary election will remain unaffiliated.
Yes, ballot preference is only good for one Primary; you will need to select a preference each time.
No. An unaffiliated voter who votes in a party’s primary will remain unaffiliated. However, the primary that you vote in will be a public record (but not how you voted).
Most unaffiliated voters will receive the ballots of both major political parties during a primary election. This allows an unaffiliated voter to choose which party’s primary they will vote in. Unaffiliated voters may only return one party’s ballot. Returning two voted ballots will result in neither ballot counting.
