Referendum Guidelines
In an effort to assist citizens with the referendum process, the City Clerk's Office has developed Referendum Guidelines (pdf format), which attempt to explain the process in a simple chronological manner. The Fort Collins City Charter grants the registered electors of Fort Collins the power to refer a Council-adopted Ordinance to the voters for approval or rejection.

Questions regarding the referendum process should be directed to the City Clerk's Office by calling 970.221.6515 or by contacting Wanda Nelson at
