Informational Media Release from the Prowers County Clerk’s Office


Court House Windmill-2


The Prowers County Clerk & Recorders Office received two Republican Candidate Petitions for the Prowers County Sheriff’s race by the March 31, 2014, deadline, from Candidate’s Shawn Stone and Ronald Trowbridge.  It was determined by the County Clerk’s Office that Ronald Trowbridge submitted enough number of valid signatures to qualify for placement on the 2014 Republican Primary election ballot. 

Party Affiliation & Voter Registration for the 2014 Primary Election 

Registered unaffiliated electors: The elector may affiliate and cast a ballot any time up until and on Election Day (June 24, 2014). 

Registered affiliated electors:  (Last day to change party affiliations is May 23, 2014) 

 An elector who is registered and affiliated anywhere in the state may not change his or her affiliation after the 29-day deadline(May 23, 2014) under section 1-2-219, C.R.S. The elector must vote the ballot for the party he or she is affiliated with as of the 29th day (May 23, 2014) before Election Day. If the elector makes an affiliation change after the deadline, the county must defer processing that change until after the election.   

 If an elector moves within the state and updates his or her information after the 29th day, he or she cannot change affiliation at that time. (Note: Because the 29th day falls on a holiday, the affiliation deadline moves to the previous business day—May 23, 2014.) 

 Not registered in Colorado: A person who is not yet registered in Colorado may register and affiliate through election day if he or she has resided in the state for 22 days before the election. The new elector will receive a regular ballot for the party he or she affiliates with at the time of registration. This provision applies only to individuals who are not registered anywhere in the state. 

Thank you,
