Commerce City’s 2015 Municipal Election Process Begins

Commerce City voters will determine five elected positions during the Nov. 3, 2015, nonpartisan municipal election. Voters will elect a mayor, council members for Ward II and Ward IV as well as two individuals to represent the city at-large for a four-year term. In addition, City Council will decide whether to refer any issues or charter amendments to the November ballot by Aug. 31, 2015.

Commerce City will host a candidate information session at 6 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 6, 2015, for potential candidates. While not mandatory, the meeting at the civic center will provide all candidates with details on campaign rules and regulations. Information about the city’s structure, budget, and current activities also will be provided so candidates have information on current city operations and projects.

Residents interested in elected office must meet the following requirements:
• Citizen of the United States
• 18 years of age or older
• City resident for at least 12 months preceding appointment
• Resident of ward (not applicable for at-large seats) for 25 days immediately preceding appointment
• Cannot be serving a felony conviction (including probation or parole)

To become a candidate, residents must file a notarized candidate affidavit and file with the city clerk within 10 days of publicly announcing their intent and either accepting a donation or expending funds in support of their candidacy. Nomination petitions are available 8 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 4, 2015, and candidates must submit completed nomination petitions (signed by at least 25 registered electors within the ward or city) by 5 p.m. Aug. 24, 2015, to be placed on the ballot. The city will hold a special meeting at 6 p.m. Aug. 31, 2015, to draw lots for the order of names of the 2015 ballot.

Required forms and petitions are available at the city clerk’s office, 7887 E. 60th Avenue, Commerce City. More information is available online at c3gov.com/elections or by calling the city clerk’s office at 303-289-3611
