Updated March 27: Governor Polis’ recent stay-at-home order will not impact the election as it falls under essential government services and can continue as normal. Also, the election is tied to the State of Colorado and it is up to the State to cancel the election.
Due to the current situation, the Town is taking extra precautions to make in-person polling possible. The Town encourages locals to virus-proof their vote through an Absentee ballot process. Follow these steps to avoid crowds and limit your interactions with others:
- Throughout the week of March 30, the Town Clerk will schedule 15-minute appointments between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Contact email@example.com or 970-726-8081 x208 to make an appointment.
- Visit Town Hall at your scheduled time (bring your own pen!) and complete an Absentee ballot application. You can also download the application and complete it ahead of time.
- You will receive your ballot at that time and can complete it before leaving Town Hall.
- This process will take place in a room where you will be by yourself, except for one Town staff member.
In-person polling will still be an option at Town Hall on April 7 between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. The Town will have measures in place to ensure social distancing is maintained while voting. Hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes and hand washing stations will be available as well.
Absentee Ballot Applications must be in by 5 p.m. on Friday, April 3, 2020
Absentee Ballots must be returned by 7 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, April 7, 2020
We know there are a lot of elections happening this year, but your voice matters on a local level as well as on a national level! Winter Park’s municipal election will be held on Tuesday, April 7 and four Town Council members will be elected at that time. Three 4-year terms are open along with one 2-year term.
While Grand County sends ballots in the mail, the Town of Winter Park's elections are conducted through in-person voting. The polling place will be Winter Park Town Hall, 50 Vasquez Road in the Council Chambers between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on April 7.
If you're unable to vote that day, applications for absentee ballots will be available in Town Hall starting on March 6.
You can register to vote through election day – check your registration status.
