Every April of odd years, the City of Grand Junction holds its municipal election. This is the opportunity for registered voters to choose their Councilmembers and weigh in on important issues on the ballot.

What will voters see on the ballot?

  • Three Council seats up for election: District B, District C, and an At-large seat;
  • Three sales tax questions: an increase in sales tax for first responders, transportation, and a community center;
  • One question regarding the sale of Burkey Park; and
  • Two questions concerning amendments to the City’s Charter (regarding franchises and lease terms).

A sample ballot can be found at www.gjcity.org/AprilElection.

Check your mailbox!

Ballots will be mailed to registered voters living in the City limits on March 11. If you do not receive your ballot by Monday, March 18, please call Mesa County Elections at 970-244-1662.

**New for 2019**

An outside ballot box near the front entrance to City Hall will be available for voters to drop off their voted ballots. In addition, beginning March 11, a few parking spots near the ballot box will be designated as free ten-minute parking for ballot drop-off. Voters may also return their ballot via mail or drop off their ballot outside Mesa County Elections at 200 South Spruce Street.

In order to be counted, completed ballots must be returned by 7 PM on April 2.

When will election results be available?

Mesa County will issue unofficial preliminary election results around 7 PM on Election Day. These results will be posted on the City’s website and broadcast on Cable Channel 191. Updated results will be posted as they become available.
