Health District board members serve staggered four-year terms and are elected at-large by Colorado voters who are district residents or who own — or whose spouse or civil union  partner own — taxable real or personal property within the district.

District boundaries encompass the northern two-thirds of Larimer County and include Fort Collins, Timnath,  Laporte, Bellvue, Wellington and Red Feather Lakes. 

Elections are held every two years in odd-numbered years.
