Fremont County encompasses an area of 1,533 square miles and has a population of 47,426. Mild weather and beautiful landscapes make Fremont County a tourist attraction in all seasons. Towns such as Cañon City, Florence, Penrose and Cotopaxi reside within the County.

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.
