Fremont County took its name from famed western explorer Captain John C. Fremont, "The Pathfinder," who, along with his scout Kit Carson, mapped the territory in 1843. Fremont County is nestled along the Arkansas River valley in south central Colorado at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. Fremont County encompasses an area of 1,533 square miles and has a population of 47,426. Mild weather and beautiful landscapes make Fremont County a tourist attraction in all seasons. Towns such as Cañon City, Florence, Penrose and Cotopaxi reside within the County.

2018 Changes to Primary Elections in Colorado
Colorado voters approved Proposition 108 in 2016, which allows unaffiliated voters (sometimes referred to as “independent” voters) to now participate in Colorado primary elections.

This year, all active unaffiliated voters will receive the Primary Election ballots for both the Democratic and Republican Parties in the mail. The voter may vote and return only one of the ballots. If a voter marks and returns more than one party’s ballot, none of their votes will be counted.

As an alternative, unaffiliated voters may update their voter registration and declare a ballot preference in advance of the Primary Election at Declaring a ballot preference does not change your unaffiliated voter registration, this option simply means you will receive just one of the major party's ballots in the mail for this election. This option helps conserve taxpayer resources, because your county will only need to print and mail one ballot, instead of two.
