The League of Women Voters of Larimer County is Non-partisan

but Advocates for its Positions*

 

The League of Women Voters of Larimer County has a Position on the number of Larimer County Commissioners

 

This Position reads:

 

Number of Larimer County Commissioners

Supports increasing the number of Larimer County Commissioners from three to five and exclusively supports the following two election options for the ballot:

Five commissioners, each elected by voters in their representative districts.

Three commissioners elected by voters in their representative districts and two countywide commissioners elected at-large.

 

Current Election

The November 3, 2020 election will select two new members to the County Commissioner of Larimer County, so it is timely to review the composition of our Larimer County Commission.

 

Larimer County has had three County Commissioners since the 70s when our population was 89,900. We are now at 350,000 and are still represented by  three commissioners. Weld County with a similar but still smaller population has five commissioners. It is time that we had more representation.

* A League cannot advocate unless it has a local, state or national position and Positions require a year of study and a consensus vote. Positions are not created or taken lightly.
