Agriculture in Disaster Event

Fremont County Commissioners and Emergency Management would like to invite you to an Ag in Disaster preparedness event. Speakers will cover issues related to agriculture involved in disasters to include: livestock evacuation challenges during a wildfire, land access and temporary re-entry discussions as well as widespread disease, blizzard and drought issues. We will also briefly address incident command basics and Incident Management Team operations to better understand the response side.

2018 Changes to Primary Elections in Colorado

Colorado voters approved Proposition 108 in 2016, which allows unaffiliated voters (sometimes referred to as “independent” voters) to now participate in Colorado primary elections.
Here is how it works this year:

  • All active unaffiliated voters receive the Primary Election ballots for both the Democratic and Republican Parties in the mail unless the voter pre-designated their ballot preference (by updating their voter registration with a ballot preference).
  • For unaffiliated voters receiving both ballots in the mail, the voter must vote only one ballot – then tear and discard/recycle the other ballot.
  • The voter then returns their one voted ballot in their return envelope by mail, ballot drop-off, etc.

If a voter marks and returns more than one party’s ballot, none of their votes on either ballot will be counted. Additionally, by selecting and returning a party ballot a voter’s “unaffiliated” voter registration will not be changed.
For those registered with a political party, there are no changes to the Primary Election process. The voter gets a ballot in the mail for their political party, if their party is holding a Primary Election. Ballots will be mailed the first week of June.

Changes Coming for Motor Vehicle

You may experience longer wait times than normal in the Motor Vehicle Department this summer. The State of Colorado is upgrading all offices with new technology. Our staff will be training throughout the summer to learn the new system and sometimes we will be short staffed. We will make every effort possible to expedite your visit with us. Take advantage of our online renewal services, our drop boxes and our self-service kiosk at these times.

Our Motor Vehicle Department will be closed and no in-person or online services will be available from August 1-5, 2018 as we cutover to the new system. The new system is going to be so much more functional and efficient and we are excited to announce new online services will be available starting August 6, 2018. Please be patient with us as we learn and train on the new system so that we might better serve you in the future!
