Ballots will be driven to Hot Sulphur Springs for counting by the Grand County Clerk and Recorder’s office after the polls close.
Since there is only one precinct to count, results are expected not long after the ballots are delivered.
Start checking the Sky-Hi Daily News Web site around 10 p.m. for results. Editor Autumn Phillips will stay in touch with election official Todd Holzwarth and post updates if results are not available for some reason by that time.
The ballot is broken into three sections ” one for each recall effort. Within each section will be a question to recall or not recall a board member.
Voters must answer “yes” or “no” on the recall of board members in order to vote on the replacements for any recalled board members, Holzwarth said.
Voters may choose a replacement, even if they vote “no” on the recall.
