August 16, 2016 – A public lot drawing will be held at the Elections office tomorrow, August 16, at 8 a.m. to determine the order of the 2016 General Election candidates on the ballot. The races and candidates to be determined are as follows:

1) Commissioner District 1: John Justman and Mel Mulder (Unaffiliated candidateJim Doody will appear 3rd)

2) Commissioner District 3: Rose Pugliese and Dave Edwards

“The lot drawing is a process that both educates and entertains those in attendance,” Clerk and Recorder Sheila Reiner said. “It’s designed to determine ballot order in an impartial and fair way and by statute the order is chosen by lot.  Mesa County chooses to roll dice. Anyone who’s interested in seeing the event should stop by, but should be on time because it goes quickly!”

The drawing is a process required by Colorado State Statute to determine the order of candidates [Section 1-5-404, C.R.S.]. For more information or for any other questions email the Elections office at or call at (970) 244-1662.
