Colorado Springs: Ballots set to be mailed March 10 for 2023 General Municipal Election

~ Residents of Colorado Springs will receive their ballots for the 2023 General Municipal Election on Friday, March 10. All ballots must be returned by 7 p.m. on election day, April 4, 2023. City Clerk Sarah Johnson encourages voters to fill out their ballot as soon as possible and either mail it or drop it off at one of the 26 convenient locations.

The April ballot includes positions for Mayor, three at-large City Council seats for a four year term, and an unexpired term for City Council District 3 to serve the remaining two years of the term. Additionally, City Council referred a question to the ballot to extend the Trails, Open Space and Parks (TOPS) sales and use tax for 20 years with no increase to the tax. Each voter's ballot will contain the Mayor and City Council at-large races along with the ballot question; only those voters who reside in City Council District 3 will see this race on their ballots.
