The El Paso County Clerk and Recorder will begin mailing ballots in mid-August to registered voters in Senate District 11 for the upcoming recall election. A petition requesting the recall of Democratic State Senator John Morse was approved by a judge earlier this week. The ballot will pose two issues; one asking if Morse should be recalled. The second allows the voter to choose a successor candidate. In order for that vote to count, the first issue must not be skipped. Nearly 69,000 people are registered to vote in this election. Ballots are due by 7 PM, Sept. 10.
