Special district elections slated May 6
Voters will elect board members for special districts in Colorado on May 6, and for local residents casting ballots for those elections may mean going to a different locale than where they have gone in the past.
Because of changes in state law mandating that elections be conducted in centralized locations, downvalley voters will go to the Gypsum Recreation Center and the Eagle Pool and Ice Rink to cast ballots in the upcoming special district elections. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
