Metro district residents would get election notices by email or mail under reform bill

The Denver Post: Metropolitan districts in Colorado must let their residents know by either mail or email of any upcoming elections for its board of directors as well as their right to run for one of those seats, under a Senate bill amendment approved Wednesday.

The change, by Sen. Chris Kolker, D-Centennial, requires notice of elections by mail or email rather than allowing district officials to use other means that residents might not see.

Residents in several metro districts have complained that elections frequently are canceled without their knowledge or awareness that they had a right to self-nominate for a seat on a district’s board of directors.
