What was at stake?

Three seats were at stake, including that of the board's vice president, Dr. Lesley Smith. She was ineligible to run for another term because of Amendment 17 to the Colorado Constitution, which states that no "elected official of district....shall serve more than two consecutive terms in office."[5] Newcomer Tina Marquis filled the District B seat, while no challengers filed against District E or F incumbents Tom Miers and Jennie Belval.
