Board of Director Candidates 

 With the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Colorado, we are encouraging voters to apply for an absentee ballot for the May 5, 2020 election.  By voting absentee, you will receive your ballot in the mail, vote it, and mail it back to the address on the return envelope, thus eliminating the need to vote at the polls on Election Day.   If you have already applied for permanent absentee voter status, there is no need to apply again.

NOTICE: BALLOTS MUST BE RECEIVED BY 7:00 PM ELECTION DAY (MAY 5, 2020) Some eligible voters may have received an absentee ballot from the Apex Park and Recreation District, Arvada Fire Protection District, (or both) that contained a printing error in the wording on the front side of the return envelope stating that the envelope (with ballot enclosed) must be postmarked by Election Day (May 5).
