2013 Commissioner Redistricting
In November 2012, the voters of Adams County approved an increase of the number of elected commissioners from three to five. The voters also determined that the members of the board shall be residents in districts and each elected by the voters of the whole county.
In accordance with C.R.S. 30-10-306, the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) held a public hearing on May 22, 2013 at 6:30 p.m. in the Hearing Room of the Adams County Government Center, 4430 S. Adams County Parkway, Brighton, CO – 1st Floor to consider three alternatives for the new boundaries establishing five commissioner districts. The final map of the five commissioner district boundaries was selected by the BOCC on June 26, 2013.
In 2014, there will be three BOCC seats up for election/re-election. As required by C.R.S. 30-10-306.5, one seat will have a two-year term in order to stagger the terms for the five seats, and this seat will be determined by the BOCC during this process. In 2016, three of the commissioner seats will be up for election / re-election, one of which will be for the seat with the initial two-year term.
