    Top Trending FAQs for School Board Recall Elections

    • I’m not happy with the recall statements on the ballot - Why is there so much verbage for the recall question?
      We are required by state statute (C.R.S. 1-12-112) to place the statement of grounds from the recall petition as well as the incumbent’s statement of justification on the ballot. Per state statute, these statements were printed as submitted.


    • Which district do I vote?  Which district am I in?
      All voters will vote for all three recall questions. Additional information about Jefferson County school board member districts and a full school board district map can be found on the Jefferson County Public Schools' websiteYou are now leaving the jeffco.us website to an external site


    • If I vote no on the recall question, can I/should I vote for a successor?
      Yes. If the recall passes, this would be your opportunity to vote for a successor. If the recall fails, the school board member that was sought to be recalled will remain in office for the remainder of their term.
