The El Paso County Clerk's office is urging voters to contact them if they have yet to receive a ballot. KRCC's Tucker Hampson reports.
About 340,000 ballots went out in El Paso County last week. Election officials expect about 40-50% to be returned before Election Day.
"Every election is important, regardless of what jurisdiction you live in," says Ryan Parsell with the El Paso County Clerk and Recorders Office.
"There's important things on the ballot for you to consider and make your voice heard on, so we strongly encourage everyone to research the issues and make their voice heard by voting on their ballot and returning it to our office as early as possible."
Parsell says there are several ways to return ballots, including 13 drop boxes throughout the county. Ballots must be received by 7pm on November 3rd.
The county clerk's office says ballots cannot be forwarded by the post office, but voters can update registration by October 26th to still receive one in the mail.
