Local Party History
Thanks to Gene Goffin for going through decades of data and compiling election results as well as the history of the Mesa County Democratic Party. His research begins: “The myth that Mesa County has always been a Republican county is nothing more than a myth. After 22 years with Republican control of the County Commission, a significant part of the younger population has seen nothing else, so it is understandable many believe Mesa County always has been Republican. An examination of a century’s worth of votes for County Commissioner show periods of dominance for either major party.”
