2023 Elections for Special Districts
Absentee ballots for each election must be requested by April 25 using the form provided on the district website. Ballots will NOT be automatically mailed to all eligible electors. If you do not request an absentee ballot by April 25, you must vote in person at each district on May 2 between 7 am and 7 pm.
All of the elections below are non-partisan. The Eagle County Democratic Party encourages all voters to do their own research and make their own decisions about who and what to vote for. The recommendations below are provided for your consideration but do not constitute an endorsement.
