This election season is shaping up to be fairly busy for an off-year. It's an IMPORTANT year, with state and local elections and issues that will affect YOU!

There are big City Council and Mayor races in Loveland, with 14 candidates confirmed for the ballot.

Poudre School District will hold an election, but Thompson will not, due to no unopposed seats.

There are also more off-year ballot issues this Fall than in previous years, with 2 for Colorado, 1 for Larimer County, 1 for Poudre School District, and 4 for the City of Loveland.

Our team is working hard to research and write-up local issues as well as prepare for presentations. And plans are in the works for candidate forums. Check back with us frequently as we update information on ballot issues, candidate forums, and other items that will be critical to helping you make an informed vote!
