Candidates for city councils and school boards across the metro area have spoken. They’ve outlined their positions on issues from housing affordability to school funding in a variety of forums and in Q&As returned to our newsroom. 

Clerks mailed ballots to registered voters on Oct. 16. 

Now, it’s time for you to decide.

Going through that ballot full of candidates and issues is a lot of work, but Colorado Community Media has you covered.

Our reporters and editors have covered major races and election issues in the cities, towns and suburbs surrounding Denver. We drilled down on the issues advanced by city council and school board candidates. We submitted questionnaires to candidates asking them to tell us, in their own words, why they’re running. We even dug a bit into some campaign finances, revealing the funders backing certain candidates. 

Right up to Election Day on Nov. 7, visit for the latest. We will have the latest breaking campaign trail news as well as results on election night in real time.

And because election results don’t necessarily line up with our print deadlines, we’ll be offering a special Election Runback newsletter, delivered directly to your inbox on Wednesday, Nov. 8. Click here to sign up for the Elections Runback, or our other newsletter offerings.
