The 2022 Colorado gubernatorial election will take place on November 8, 2022. Incumbent Democratic Governor Jared Polis is running for reelection to a second term. The primary election was held on June 28.

Polis won election to the governorship in the 2018 Colorado gubernatorial election by a double-digit margin when he defeated State Treasurer Walker Stapleton of the Republican Party. Polis’s victory marked the fourth straight election in which Colorado elected a Democratic governor. The victory of Jared Polis marked the first time in American electoral history that an openly gay politician was elected governor of a state.
