Who can vote in the DDA election?
The organization of a DDA involves a group of electors different than most other elections. The electors qualified to vote in a DDA election are the residents, landowners and lessees WITHIN the boundaries (map) of the proposed DDA. Residents are persons who are United States Citizens and residents of the State of Colorado who reside within the boundaries of the proposed DDA. Landowners and lessees who are persons can also vote, and entities (for example, a LLC or corporation) that are landowners or lessees may vote by designating a person to vote on their behalf. The DDA election follows the “one person/one vote” rule, where even though a person or entity may be qualified to vote in more than one way, a person may only vote once. For example, if an entity owns multiple properties within the DDA, that entity may only cast one vote through a designated person, and any person designated to vote on behalf of an entity may not cast an additional ballot.
How will the DDA election work?
Arapahoe County, on behalf of the City of Littleton, will run the DDA election as a mail-ballot election. Residents who are active registered electors and persons who are landowners within the boundaries of the DDA will automatically receive a ballot in the mail. Other qualified electors will need to request a ballot and, for entities that are qualified electors, prepare a form designating the person to vote on its behalf.
