The three remaining Motor Vehicle Offices in El Paso County are now also open as Voter Service and Polling Centers as primary election day draws near. KRCC’s Tucker Hampson reports.
Of the 214,000 ballots that went out earlier this month, over 33,000 of them have been returned so far. Most of them are expected to be returned by mail, according to Ryan Parsell, El Paso County Clerk and Recorder Spokesman. Parsell added they expect between 30-35% of those who received a ballot to return them.
Election day is Tuesday, June 24th, and ballots are due by 7:00pm. They can be returned by mail, Voter Service and Polling Centers [.pdf], or at one of 11 different 24/7 drop boxes in El Paso County. Unaffiliated voters may still declare a party, but at this point will have to vote in person.
