What Routt County voters should remember for the primary

With the primary election coming up Tuesday, June 28, here are some reminders for Routt County voters.

Which races are competitive?

Most local races in this primary are uncontested. The one exception is the race for Republican nomination for the Colorado House of Representatives District 26 seat. 

Savannah Wolfson of Oak Creek and Glenn Lowe of Eagle are vying to secure the Republican nomination. The winner will square off against Meghan Lukens of Steamboat Springs, the only Democrat running for the seat.

Statewide, two Republicans are running for the nomination for governor: Heidi Ganahl and Greg Lopez. The winner will face off against incumbent Democratic Gov. Jared Polis in November.

Additionally, Joe O’Dea and Ron Hanks are competing for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate against incumbent Democrat Sen. Michael Bennet.
