Unofficial 2018 Special Election Results: both measures pass

Special Election 5.15 News Graphic

Castle Rock voters on Tuesday night finalized the necessary details to elect their Mayor at-large, according to preliminary election results.

Unofficial results for Castle Rock’s 2018 Special Election have been posted online at CRgov.com/2018SpecialElection. In all, 8,558 ballots were cast.

Charter Amendment A
In order to implement the November 7, 2017 voter-approved amendment to the Town of Castle Rock Home Rule Charter providing for a Town Council consisting of a Mayor elected at-large and six Councilmembers elected from districts, shall the Town Charter be further amended to add a transition plan specifying the November 6, 2018 regular election as the date for election of the Mayor and two Councilmembers and the following regular election as the date for election of four Councilmembers, authorize the Election Commission to timely establish the boundaries of the six Town Council districts in 2018, and make certain other conforming amendments to the Town Charter in accordance with Town Council Ordinance?

Yes – 7,604
No – 876

Charter Amendment B
Shall Section 2-4 of the Town of Castle Rock Home Rule Charter be amended to establish qualifications for the office of Mayor such that the Mayor at the time of nomination, election or appointment is a registered elector of the Town of Castle Rock, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of the Town of Castle Rock for twelve consecutive months preceding election or appointment and prohibit the Mayor from being a paid employee of the Town, in accordance with Town Council Ordinance No. 2018-002?

Yes – 7,813
No –¬ 686

The above results from the May 15 election are preliminary and must still be finalized by the Town later this month.

Castle Rock voters were asked two questions as a necessary follow-up to the 2017 Special Election in which voters approved a citizen-initiated effort to elect the Mayor Townwide. Implementing that change required a transition plan and qualifications for Mayor be defined in the Town Charter. Changes to the Charter require voter approval, so Town Council called the special election to implement the will of voters as quickly as possible.

Now, the Election Commission will work to change Castle Rock’s voting districts from seven to six. The next election will be for an at-large Mayor and two Councilmembers. It will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 6.
