Primary mail-in voting coming to a close
Voters who haven’t voted by now can no longer do so by mail, at least not with any hope that it will arrive in time to be counted on Tuesday.
Voters still waiting to cast ballots in the primary election will have to deliver their ballots to one of several ballot boxes scattered around the county.
Unaffiliated voters also can register with a political party at one of two voter service centers today, Monday and Tuesday, and cast a ballot in the primary election.
Filled-in mail ballots can be dropped off at one of several locations, including the Elections Division and recording offices at the old Mesa County Courthouse, 544 Rood Ave.; the Mesa Mall clerk’s office, 2424 U.S. Highway 6&50; the Department of Motor Vehicles at the Mesa County Fairgrounds, 2775 U.S. Highway 50, on Orchard Mesa; the Peachtree Shopping Center in Clifton, 3225 I-70 Business Loop, Unit A-2; and the Fruita Civic Center, 325 E. Aspen St.
Voters who want to cast their ballots on touch-screen machines can do so at the old courthouse and Mesa Mall locations.
The voter-service centers are open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. today (Saturday), 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Election Day.
