With Election Day coming closer and closer, there is still time to cast your ballot. Though online registration for this year’s first-time mail-in vote closed on Oct. 28, you can still register in person up to and on Tuesday at one of the voter service and polling centers in Boulder that you can find here. But beware: The county clerk has to have received your ballot by 7 p.m. on Election Day. To update your registration and to learn more about voting procedures, go to the information site provided by the Colorado secretary of state.
For those citizens who want to learn more about how ballots are being processed, Boulder County Clerk and Recorder Hillary Hall will hold an open house meeting on Monday, according to the Longmont Times-Call. Hall will make herself available from 4.30 to 6.30 p.m. at the Ballot Processing Center at 1750 33rd St.
According to the Durango Herald, voting turnout so far is low with only a couple of days left to cast the ballot. The low turnout could pose a thread to the statewide education measure Amendment 66, the Herald concludes, as the majority of those who did mail in their ballot by now were Republican voters who traditionally tend to oppose tax increases.
