Castle Rock town officials announced the finalists for the upcoming town council race. While incumbents Mayor Pro Tem Kevin Bracken and Caryn Johnson are facing challengers, first-term Mayor Jason Gray is unopposed.

In a news release Melissa Hoelting, the town’s communications manager, said Bracken, of District 3, will face challenger Dean Legatski in the Nov. 8 election.

In District 5, Johnson’s current seat is challenged by Caryn Ann Harlos and Max Brooks.

Ballots will be in the mail the week of Oct. 17.

Hoelting said candidates for District 3, District 5 and the mayor’s race will be on the ballot.

Hoelting said only registered voters who live within District 3 and District 5 will have those candidates on their ballot. However, the mayoral candidates will be on the ballots of all registered voters in Castle Rock.

For residents who are unsure of which districts they live, Hoelting said they can visit the elections website at  CRgov.com/ElectionDistricts.

According to the news release, 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, Hoelting said in the news release.

The news release said the Town of Castle Rock conducts all of its elections by mail ballot and coordinates the election with Douglas County.

To register to vote, update voter information, get a replacement ballot, find ballot drop box and voting locations or track a ballot, citizens can visit the website at DouglasVotes.com.
