Water District Elections

Did you know that there is an election for the Fort Collins-Loveland Water District, on May 8?  Ordinarily, this kind of election is under the radar of the general public.  However, this year, the water district election is gaining a lot of attention, as there are 7 candidates for 3 spots on the board of directors.

The Board of Directors makes difficult and important decisions about our water supply in this area, including tap fees, rates, conservation, sources, etc.

  • The website for our water district is www.fclwd.com. You can obtain an absentee ballot on the website.
  • There is a candidate forum being held on April 25 in the Harmony Library Community Room from 7:30 until 9:00.
  • More information on candidate and their positions can be found at Vote411.org

    1. Hi Garrett,

      They might have been doing a software update on Vote 411 but I’ve heard it’s working again now. Try going to http://onyourballot.vote411.org/race-detail.do?id=17371983

      For future races, try using the instructions below:

      If you are a resident of the election district, go to http://www.vote411.org. On the left, enter your address information. A green strip will appear with the words “Get personalized information on candidates and issues.” Click on the green strip. A Vote 411 Voter Guide will appear with all the elections in which you are eligible to vote. Select the election for a description and scroll down for a list of candidates. To view candidate information, select any two candidates for a side-by-side comparison of biographical information and question responses. You can change candidates to learn about each candidate and compare.

      Another way to view the election without entering an address:

      Go to http://www.vote411.org. On the lower left side, enter Colorado to view State Voter Information. Scroll down to click on Candidate and Ballot Information. Click on Race Index. Again click on Colorado. Select the election for a description and scroll down for a list of candidates. To view candidate information, select any two candidates for a side-by-side comparison of biographical information and question responses. You can change candidates to learn about each candidate and compare.
