What was at stake?

Incumbent Phyllis Sanchez sought re-election to the board. Fellow member Stephanie Garcia was ineligible to run for another term because of Amendment 17 to the Colorado Constitution, which says that no "elected official of district....shall serve more than two consecutive terms in office." Sanchez was challenged by Patty Milner, Frances Montgomery and Anita Stapleton for two available seats.

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages.[5]
