Other Important Elections Set for August, November
In late March, local political parties held precinct caucuses where delegates were selected to represent the precinct at the April county conventions. At the county conventions, representatives will be chosen for the May state conventions. Precinct caucuses, county conventions, and state conventions are all part of the multi-level process that lead to the August primaries.
In August, CPN voters will head to the polls again to choose the candidate who will represent their party in the November 7 election.
On November 7, voters across the state will cast ballots to elect the next Colorado Governor.
