Who is eligible to vote in a special district election?

An eligible elector is a person who, at the designated time or event, is registered to vote in Colorado, and who is:

a resident of the special district or the area to be included in the special district for not less than thirty days; or

Who, or whose spouse, owns taxable real or personal property situated within the boundaries of the special district or the area to be included in the special district, whether said person resides within the district or not.

A person who is obligated to pay taxes under a contract to purchase taxable property situated within the boundaries of the special district or the area to be included within the special district shall be considered an owner.

For all elections and petitions that require ownership of real property or land, a mobile home or a manufactured home shall be deemed sufficient to qualify as ownership of real property or land for the purposes of voting rights and petitions.

Note: a partnership, corporation or trust is not a “person” and therefore a person owning property through such a legal entity is not eligible to vote. Inquiries regarding whether a property is listed as a ‘non-entity’ should be discussed with the local County Assessor’s Office on the property in question.

C.R.S. § 32-1-103(5)
