I voted today in Denver’s 2015 municipal elections. NOTWITHSTANDING A TYPO ON MANY BALLOTS, they are due MAY 5 NOT IN JUNE.
There were no ballot issues. There were citywide elections for Mayor (with a strong incumbent Mayor Hancock and a few weak challengers running), Auditor (an open seat with two strong candidates running), Clerk and Recorder (with a strong incumbent and a weak challenger running), and city council at large (vote for two, with two incumbents running, but a large field including a number of other strong candidates).
There were also races in each single member city council district, of which there are many, a great number of which are flooded with candidates because term limits have left the seats open.
In all, I cast votes for six different candidates. This took a fair amount of research (the seats are officially non-partisan, so there are few easy hints about how to vote), which I owe a post for the world on, but may or may not have time to actually write.
In all races except city council at large, if no candidate receives a majority, the top two candidates will face off in a run off election for which ballots are due in June.
Most of the candidates were very underwhelming on the issues.
