Ballots are in the mail

Grand County will be voting by mail ballot for the Nov. 6 election.

Grand County Clerk and Recorder Sara Rosene said all the mail ballots were mailed on Friday, Oct. 12. A total of 6,276 mail ballots have been sent out.

None of the mail ballots were sent to the Kremmling area because an election issue pertaining to that area of the county is not on this year’s ballot. The only ballots going to western Grand County are to some residents in the Parshall area who are in the Hot Sulphur Springs Fire Protection District.

Rosene said that some voters in eastern Grand County may not have received a mail ballot by the beginning of this week because they have fallen into the category of “inactive voter” for failing to participate in the last general election. She said they can still vote in the Nov. 6 election, but must now apply for a “mail-in” ballot, which was formerly known as an abstentee ballot.

“Mail-in” ballots can be obtained by stopping by the Grand County Clerk’s Office at the courthouse in Hot Sulphur Springs. Voters may also fill out an application for one by going to the Grand County government Web site at Look for it under the Clerk and Recorder’s department in “elections.”

Applications for mail-in ballots cannot be e-mailed back to the Grand County Clerk.

They must either be mailed, FAXed or delivered to the clerk’s office.

To be counted in this election, all ballots must be submitted to the Grand County Clerk’s not later than 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 6.
