Eagle County primary election to be conducted by mail

By Real Vail
May 10, 2012
Eagle County's primary election will take place on June 26 and will be conducted as a mail ballot election. Voters affiliated with the Democratic, Republican, American Constitution or Libertarian parties will be mailed their party's ballot between June 4 and June 8. The deadline to register to vote or change party affiliation for the primary is May 25. Unaffiliated voters can affiliate with any participating party at any time up to and including Election Day.

While some of this year's primary ballots have no contested races, election law requires that if any major party's ballot has a contested race, all major party ballots must be prepared and an election conducted.

Election services specific to the primary, including new and replacement ballots, voting booths, disabled voting machine access and ballot drop boxes will be available at all three Clerk & Recorder offices in Avon at 100 W. Beaver Creek Blvd., Eagle at 500 Broadway and El Jebel at 20 Eagle County Rd. Hours will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday starting in the first part of June, as well as from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, June 23 and from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day, June 26.

Voters are reminded to update residence and mailing addresses if they have moved to ensure they receive a ballot and that their ballot represents their correct district races. State law prohibits ballots from being forwarded. Voted ballots must be received at any Eagle County Clerk & Recorder's office no later than 7 p.m. June 26 to be counted. Return postage for most ballot packets sent through the U.S. Postal Service will be 45 cents; however, some voters are required to submit additional documents and their postage may be slightly higher. Those with questions should confirm required postage with their post office.

Sample ballots are available online at www.eaglecounty.us/clerk under "Upcoming Elections" and will be published in local newspapers at the end of May. Voter registration is available online at www.govotecolorado.com or at any of our offices. Voters should contact Teak Simonton at 970-328-8728 or Pat Magdziuk at 970-328-8726 with questions.
