Unaffiliated voters with no preference will receive a Democratic ballot and a Republican ballot, but they can only choose one to fill out and return.
Grand County reports on their website that they are receiving calls expressing concern over whether or not the Colorado of Secretary of State, Wayne Williams, will be providing the Trump Administration’s Election Integrity Commission with Colorado electors’ personal voting records.
The Grand County Elections webpage explains that Secretary of State Williams will be providing the Commission with voter’s name, address, party affiliation, date of registration, gender identity, phone number (unless unlisted) birth year, and past voting history. He will not be providing Social Security numbers or full dates of birth. The information was to be provided to the Commission on July 14, 2017. but it will not be provided due to a lawsuit until further notice. Confidential voter information will not be shared. To become a confidential voter, fill out a voter confidentiality form, and pay a $5.00 fee with the county.
