Coordinated ElectionsThe Board of Trustees have submitted a question to the registered electors of the Town of Frederick for consideration at the November 6, 2018 Coordinated Election. Registered electors should expect to receive their ballots from the Weld County Clerk and Recorders Office.
The Board of Trustees of the Town of Frederick has referred one ballot issue to Frederick voters for the November 6, 2018 election that relates to taxes and is, therefore, considered a TABOR (Taxpayers Bill of Rights) issue. The ballot issue is numbered “2A” on the ballot.

The deadline to summit written comments to the Frederick Town Clerk is 12:00 p.m. on Friday, September 21, 2018, at 401 Locust Street, Frederick, CO 80530.

3. Comments must be filed in writing with the Frederick Town Clerk (401 Locust Street) by 12:00 p.m. September 21, 2018.
