Election Day for the Presidential Primary is March 3, 2020
On Friday, February 14, 2020, Mesa County Elections will send mail ballots to all active voters in the county who qualify to vote in the primary election.
The Presidential Primary returns to Colorado for the first time in 20 years after voters approved Proposition 107 in the 2016 election. Unlike the caucus process, the statute now allows for unaffiliated voters to participate in choosing delegates to the national conventions, along with those affiliated with the Democratic and Republican parties.
Unaffiliated voters who do not have a party preference will be receiving two ballots: one Democratic and one Republican. Voters who receive both ballots should only return one voted ballot. Should a voter return two voted ballots, their vote will not be counted.
Mesa County has 39,453 Republican voters, 16,817 Democratic voters, and 37,624 Unaffiliated voters.
If voters have any questions about the Presidential Primary, please call the Mesa County Elections Office at 970-244-1662 or visit https://clerk.mesacounty.us/elections/upcoming-elections/.
