Residents who are not registered to vote and wish to cast a ballot in the June 26 primary have until Tuesday to register at the Routt County Clerk and Recorder’s office at the Routt County Courthouse, 522 Lincoln Ave.
There are two contested Republican primary races of interest to Routt County voters: the three-way race for Routt County Board of Commissioners District 1 and the two-way race for the newly redistricted Colorado Senate District 8.
Republicans Tony Stich, Brita Horn and Moose Barrows are vying to replace veteran District 1 Commissioner Nancy Stahoviak, who is not seeking another term.
Incumbent state Sen. Jean White, R-Hayden, is being challenged by state Rep. Randy Baumgardner, R-Cowdrey, in their party’s primary for Senate District 8.
There are no Democratic primary races, but ballots will be issued anyway in the all-mail primary.
