EAGLE, Colorado – Eagle County’s primary election will take place on June 26 and will be conducted as a mail ballot election.

The deadline to register to vote or change party affiliation for the primary is May 25. Unaffiliated voters can affiliate with any participating party at any time up to and including Election Day.
