2019 Special Municipal Recall Election 

A special municipal recall election is scheduled August 20, 2019 for the purpose of (1) determining if Trustee Cody Rex Walker should be recalled from the office of Trustee, and (2) if recalled, elect a new Trustee to complete his term ending April 2020. The election will be held as a mail ballot election with ballots to be mailed beginning July 29, 2019.

The nomination petition to run as a candidate may be picked up, circulated and signed beginning Wednesday, May 29, 2019 and each petition shall be signed by at least 10 registered electors residing inside town limits. Candidates are nominated, without regard to party affiliation, by petition on forms supplied by the Town Clerk. Candidates must meet requirements outlined in 31-2-206(3) C.R.S.: 1) must be a register voter in Estes Park and 2) be at least 18 years of age. The petition must be filed with the Town Clerk no later than 5:00 p.m. Friday, June 21, 2019.

Mail ballots will be mailed to all active voters who live within town limits the week of July 29.  Voters who will not be home to receive a ballot may receive a ballot at a location other than the registered address by completing an application for an absent voter mail ballot and returning it to the Clerk's office by August 16, 2019, or by updating their voter registration with the state at www.govotecolorado.com. By law, ballots cannot be forwarded with other forwarded mail. 

In the event there are no candidates running and Trustee Walker is recalled, the Town Board of Trustees would appoint an individual to complete the term per Section 31-4-401 C.R.S.
