Make a Plan to Vote
Only 27% of Colorado Springs residents cast their votes in last year’s City Council election. Voting is not only your civic duty, it ensures that you have a say in the issues that matter most to you. So make plans now to cast yours for your City Council district representative.
Start by finding out which district you live in by clicking here.
Then, keep scrolling to watch The IC’s “Conversation with the Candidates” video below for your district.
Finally, your ballot must be received by 7:00 pm on the day of the election, April 6, 2021. You can either drop it in a secure ballot drop box (click here for a complete list) or you can mail it in. If you choose to mail your ballot, please allow up to nine (9) days for the ballot to reach its destination.
