Denver Elections conducted its lottery draw Tuesday night to determine what position the candidates for mayor, city council (both district and at-large), auditor and clerk and recorder will appear on the ballot.

If local history and political science are any indicators, this could actually affect the race by some margin. Might be a big deal in the mayor's race given that it's the largest field in at least 40 years.

Here's the order the candidates you'll be voting for  will appear on your ballot:


Lisa Calderón

Trinidad Rodriguez

Aurelio Martinez

Thomas Wolf

Al Gardner

Terrance Roberts

Kwame Spearman

Renate Behrens

Chris Hansen

Mike Johnston

James Walsh

Ean Thomas Tafoya

Andy Rougeout

Leslie Herod
