Absentee Ballots Arriving at Elections Office
Written by Andrew-Rossi on October 29, 2018
With just over a week left before the mid-term elections, anyone who wants to vote but will be unavailable to go to their polling station next Tuesday must visit the elections office at the Park County Courthouse to secure their absentee ballots or be prepared to vote right away.
Park County Clerk Colleen Renner says that voters who have not yet registered to vote, or have to make any changes to their voter registration such as a change of address or status, must either vote at the polls on November 6th, or vote at the election office – they cannot pick up an absentee ballot and mail it in later. However, she says registered voters do have that option.
Renner says that two years ago, 15,000 of the county’s residents cast votes in the general election – that’s around two-thirds of the county’s registered voters. She says that just over 9000 residents voted in the primary election in August. And she points out that so far, over 3000 ballots have been cast either at the elections office or have been mailed in, noting that all absentee ballots are due at the elections office no later than 7 p.m. on election day.
