Depending on where you live, you may vote on some municipal and special district ballot measures.

Voters in Snowmass will vote on an amendment to the town charter, which would allow elected officials to serve on town boards and commissions as non-voting members.

There are several special district questions on the ballot relating to debts and taxes. 

Voters in the Base Village Metropolitan District can vote to repeal unused debt authorization granted by voters in prior elections. In the Snowmass Water and Sanitation District, voters will see a question to extend an expiring mill levy to 2038 for funds used to pay for the district’s operational, maintenance, repair, and capital costs.

Starwood Metropolitan District voters will see two questions concerning raising taxes — one to finance water system improvements including well drilling and equipping and securing of water supply, and one to finance the construction of road and entryway improvements.

The Basalt and Rural Fire District is also looking to raise taxes to fund capital improvements, including expansion, renovation, and modernization of Fire Station 42 in El Jebel, and adding employee housing.

All Colorado voters will have the chance to vote on two statewide ballot measures. Proposition HH would make changes to state property taxes and state revenue limits, and Proposition II would allow the state to keep excess revenue generated from tobacco and nicotine sales and allocate that revenue to the state’s universal preschool program.
