The Denver Elections Division offers opportunities for members of the public to give input on various topics, including vote center locations, ballot layout, pro and con statements, and more.
Public Comment Opportunity: Proposed Precincts
By law, the Office of the Clerk and Recorder is responsible for updating the City and County of Denver’s precinct boundaries for the purpose of administering elections. Precincts allow the Denver Elections Division to ensure each voter receives a ballot that correctly reflects the offices and questions for which they can vote. Election results are aggregated at the precinct level to obtain valuable information while preserving voter anonymity. Reprecincting is a nonpartisan process.
The Elections Division is proposing changes to precinct boundaries with these goals in mind:
- Precinct boundaries will not cross Congressional, House and Senate District boundaries created by the Colorado Independent Redistricting Commissions and approved by the Colorado Supreme Court.
- Accommodate Denver’s statistical neighborhoods.
- Consider natural communities and communities of interest.
- Reduce the overall number of precincts. The proposal includes 301 precincts, down from Denver’s current number of 356.
- Maintain active registered voter populations of ~1,500 (and no more than 2,000) per precinct.
- Avoid split precincts and keep precincts contiguous wherever possible.
Your input is valuable: First, review the proposed precincts by following the links to the maps below. Then submit your comment via the form on this page. For more information on our office's role in determining precinct boundaries, see our Reprecincting FAQs.

Precincts – Political boundaries, statistical neighborhoods and population
These maps show proposed precinct boundaries as they relate to Congressional, Senate, and House political districts, as well as unique districts, statistical neighborhoods, active voter population, and total population.
Noncontiguous precincts/precincts with split neighborhoods
The current proposal achieves the office’s goals to a very high degree. However, unique circumstances may require that some precincts are non-contiguous or split between neighborhoods. There are four anomalies within the plan.
Note: Maps may be updated as needed.
