About 40 percent of the Grand County registered electorate had voted in the general election by mail-in ballot and early voting by Tuesday morning, according to Grand County Clerk and Recorder Sara Rosene.

By Monday, the county elections office processed 3,405 mail-in ballots and counted 382 early voters, with more ballots to be counted by Tuesday morning. Although those ballots were being processed, results of those ballots could not be released until 7 p.m., past the newspaper’s print deadline.

Polls are open until 7 p.m. Tuesday. Voters are reminded that for the first time this year, mail-in ballots may be dropped off at any polling venue in the county, regardless of one’s home address in the county.

However, voters casting ballots in-person today must vote at their designated home precincts.
