Friday is the deadline for affiliated voters in El Paso County to change their political party affiliation in order to vote in a June 26 primary election. Primary elections are being conducted for the Republican, Democrat and American Constitution parties.
Voter registration deadline is May 29, and a party must also be declared to vote in a primary. Eligible voters must have El Paso County residency by May 27.
Ballots will be mailed June 4 to active and inactive affiliated voters of the three parties conducting primary elections.
Unaffiliated voters have until June 19 to declare a party affiliation via online, mail, fax or email and receive a mail ballot. After June 19, voters must appear in person at one of the El Paso County Clerk’s four offices to declare a party affiliation and be eligible to vote in that primary. No ballots will be mailed after June 19.
Locations for the four Clerk & Recorder’s offices are:
“Our office wants to ensure that every eligible elector is provided the opportunity to case a ballot in this year’s primary election,” said county Clerk & Recorder Wayne Williams. “Many of the races in El Paso County will be decided by the primary election, as many of the candidates do not face an opponent in the general election.”
