Will I be able to vote in the primary election?
Yes. Unaffiliated voters are eligible to vote in any participating party's primary election, but you may only vote one party's ballot.
Do I have to choose in advance which party's ballot I want to vote?
No, but you can select a preference if you want to. You have several options:
(1) You may choose which party's ballot you want to get in the mail for the next primary election by choosing a
preference on your voter registration form or when updating your voter registration at www.govotecolorado.com; or
(2) If you would rather receive a packet containing the ballots of all participating parties, check "Receive all participating
party ballots" on your voter registration form or when updating your voter registration at www.govotecolorado.com; or
(3) You can also appear in person at any Voter Service and Polling Center in your county and choose the party's ballot
you want to vote.
Does selecting a preference mean that I am joining that party?
No. An unaffiliated voter who selects a ballot preference will remain unaffiliated.
Can I participate in a party's caucus meeting if I am unaffiliated?
No. To participate in a party caucus meeting you must join that party before the party's caucus. However, you are still eligible to vote in any participating party's primary election.
