2019 Election


Sample Ballot


General Election is March 5th, 2019. Mayor and 2 At-Large council seats are up for vote.

Aspen has a runoff system, requiring the Mayor to get 50% plus one votes, and each of the two available At-Large council seats receiving 45% plus one votes to be elected outright.

The runoff is scheduled or April 2nd, 2019.

Winners will begin their terms in June.

Petitions were circulated in December.

From Aspen Clerk's Office: Election Day for the 2019 General Election will be held on March 5th. Ballots will be mailed out on February 11th and early voting will begin in the Clerk's office on February 19th from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Mail ballots may be dropped off in the Clerk's office between 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.


News Coverage


Candidates

Current Mayor Steve Skadron is termed out. Skadron is unable to run for council due to the charter rule of serving no more than 14 years consecutively. He was first elected to council in 2007 and re-elected in 2011. He was elected as mayor in 2013 and re-elected in 2015 and 2017. As council seats are 4 year terms, the next council term for this election would end in 2023, 16 consecutive years after he was first elected, in violation of charter. In accordance to charter, he must sit out the next 4 years so they do not get counted as consecutive (partial terms are considered full terms in this regard. Charter explicitly states it). He can next be on a City Council or Mayoral ballot in 2023.

Adam Frisch is termed out of his councilor seat, and will be running for Mayor.

Moving Elections from May to March

On the November 8th, 2018 coordinated general election, the voters of Aspen voted to move the municipal elections from May/June to March/April. 68% voted for the change; 32% against.

The rationale for the shift came from a study that was conducted by the group in favor of a new date, Aspen Citizens for Democracy, tracking the number of toilet flushes. According to this study, the most flushes were on New Years Day, due to holiday tourism, and then plummeted in May when the first round of elections were previously conducted. March was found to be the "Goldilocks" time in between the rush and the resulting lull.
