It's time for another primary election, Denver.

There are no presidential candidates on the June ballot. This Election Day is all about your local representatives and decision-makers.

Ballots are in the mail to registered voters now, and Election Day is Tuesday, June 25.

Many races for seats in the state legislature are not competitive this year. In our guide, we're highlighting two races that are: State House Districts 4 and 6.

Denverites are also choosing the city's next District Attorney as Beth McCann leaves the post.

We also have more information about how to vote and where to cast your ballot.

Happy voting, Denverites.

District 4 covers northwest and west Denver, going from the top of the Regis neighborhood to the middle of Westwood.
