LAS ANIMAS COUNTY — You may be thinking—didn't we just have a primary? That was the presidential primary in March.

This June primary election includes all other offices depending on where you live, including a county commissioner seat and a state senate seat.

All of us will have a US representative race to decide, a CU Regent, a State House Rep, and a District Attorney.

The congressional seats in southern Colorado are expected to get much attention this election.

Las Animas County is in Congressional District 3, which is open after Representative Lauren Boebert announced she will be running in Congressional District 4.

  • Monday, June 3 - First-day ballots can be mailed out
