What you need to know about the 2022 primary election in Colorado
The ballot should have arrived in the mail weeks ago, and it's probably still sitting on your kitchen table.
- We're here to help with the next part: making your choices.
Why it matters: The Democratic and Republican primary elections Tuesday will set the stage for the midterm contests in November, which will decide which party controls Congress.
State of play: Three major statewide races will decide the direction of Colorado's Republican Party and its chances against Democratic incumbents for U.S. Senate, governor and secretary of state.
- Two GOP primaries for Denver-area congressional districts are getting national attention too.
- In Denver, three Democratic primaries will likely pick the eventual winners of congressional and legislative seats.
Of note: Unaffiliated voters can return ballots in either party's primary, but not both.
- Keep in mind, it's a public record which primary you participated in.
Start here: It's easy to cast a ballot in Colorado's 2022 primary election.
