The local government services section provides technical assistance in the area of Title 32, Article 1 Special District Elections. All C.R.S. 32-1-101 special districts are required, by state statute, to either conduct or legally cancel their biennial election. Regular special district elections shall be held on the Tuesday succeeding the first Monday of May in every even-numbered year.

An election manual and calendar is available to assist districts in the conduct of their regular biennial election in May of even years. In addition, the division offers technical support to election officials by hosting electronic election workshops throughout the Spring of even numbered years, beginning in January. These classes are designed to help special districts prepare for their regular biennial election.

Special districts have the option of holding TABOR Issue elections during a state general election, a biennial local district election, or on the first Tuesday in November of odd-numbered years. Districts may either coordinate or hold their own elections in November.

Special districts must file all election results with the division of local government. The division maintains information on each special district, including election results from the district’s organizational, regular, off-year, or special elections.
