A special municipal recall election is scheduled August 20, 2019 for the purpose of (1) determining if Trustee Cody Rex Walker should be recalled from the office of Trustee, and (2) if recalled, elect a new Trustee to complete his term ending April 2020. The election will be held as a mail ballot election with ballots to be mailed beginning July 29, 2019.

The nomination petition to run as a candidate may be picked up, circulated and signed beginning Wednesday, May 29, 2019 and each petition shall be signed by at least 10 registered electors residing inside town limits. Candidates are nominated, without regard to party affiliation, by petition on forms supplied by the Town Clerk. Candidates must meet requirements outlined in 31-2-206(3) C.R.S.: 1) must be a register voter in Estes Park and 2) be at least 18 years of age. The petition must be filed with the Town Clerk no later than 5:00 p.m. Friday, June 21, 2019.

In the event there are no candidates running and Trustee Walker is recalled, the Town Board of Trustees would appoint an individual to complete the term per Section 31-4-401 C.R.S.
