2022 Town Council candidates
The Nov. 8, 2022, election will be for Councilmembers representing Districts 3 and 5, and the Mayor at Large.
Elections for Town Council are nonpartisan elections (meaning they do not run under a certain party, therefore there are no primary elections).
Elections are held in November of even-numbered years with Council seats up for election on an alternating basis. Councilmember and Mayoral terms are limited to two consecutive, 4-year terms.
The order in which the candidates will appear on the election ballot was determined by lot as follows:
- Jason E. Gray
District 3 (eastern portions of The Meadows, Castle Highlands, Red Hawk and the Wolfensberger Road corridor west of Prairie Hawk Drive)
- Dean Legatski
- Kevin Bracken
District 5 (southeast Castle Rock)
- Caryn Johnson
- Max Brooks
- Caryn Ann Harlos
Additionally, each seat will have an option for a write-in candidate. Write-in candidates must submit an affidavit to the Town Clerk by 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 10. Only votes for write-in candidates who have submitted an affidavit to the Town Clerk will be counted.
Mail ballot elections
The Town of Castle Rock conducts elections by mail ballot as coordinated by Douglas County Elections.
Ballots are mailed to all active, registered electors who appear in the County's voter registration records beginning Oct. 17 for the November 2022 election. Mail ballot packets include the ballot, instructions for completing the ballot, a secrecy envelope to conceal the vote and a return envelope. The voter must pay postage if returning the ballot by mail
Ballots cannot be forwarded, so any elector who has moved and did not update their address will not receive a ballot. Undeliverable ballots are returned to the Douglas County Elections Office. If you have registered to vote or updated your address at the Department of Motor Vehicles office, you should confirm your changes have been activated. To verify your voter eligibility status, confirm changes that have been made, or to update your current address go to www.govotecolorado.com.
Completion of the self-affirmation area on the return envelope is required. The affirmation is to be signed by the voter to whom the ballot was issued. The witness signature is only required if you are unable to sign your voter signature on the self-affirmation statement.
Ballots must be physically received by Douglas County Elections or deposited in a ballot drop-off location by 7 p.m. on Election Day to be counted. The postmark date does not count as the received date. Ballots may be returned by mail or dropped off at authorized drop-off locations.
Local 24-hour ballot drop-off locations
These locations are available 24 hours a day for ballot drop-off beginning Oct. 17, 2022, until 7 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2022. Ballots must be placed in the ballot box by the close of the polls at 7 p.m.
Ballot drop box locations are for ballot drop-offs only. For additional voter services, please visit a Voter Service and Polling Center. For locations, visit DouglasVotes.com.
A registered elector may obtain a replacement ballot if their ballot was
To request a replacement ballot please contact the Douglas County Elections Office. You will need to provide identification and sign a sworn statement about why a replacement ballot is being requested. The original ballot that was issued will be voided. If both the original and the replacement ballot are cast, neither ballot will be counted.
A registered elector may request to receive a ballot at an address other than what is registered no later than seven days prior to the election date. Once an absentee ballot is mailed, any other ballot previously mailed shall be considered void and only the absentee ballot will be counted.
