Unaffiliated voters can still pick party for primary

Unaffiliated voters who want a say in the primary election can register with a party and cast a ballot this week and on Election Day at either of two voter service centers that now are open.

Voters also can update their affiliation, receive a replacement ballot or cast their primary ballots on a touch-screen machine instead of on a mail-in ballot.

Unaffiliated voters have until the close of voting on Election Day a week from today to register with one of the parties conducting a primary election and cast a ballot.

Voters who already are registered with a party, however, cannot change registration.

Voters who wish to cast ballots on touch-screen machines instead of on the mail-in ballots they received can do so, Elections Director Catherine Lenhart said.

The mail-in ballots sent to touch-screen voters will be voided, Lenhart said.

Mail-in ballots can be surrendered in that case, or discarded.

“We’d like to have it back, but it’s not valid” and no longer can be used, Lenhart said of a mail-in ballot that is not used.

The service centers and their hours are:

Old Mesa County Courthouse, 544 Rood Ave.,  8 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Friday; 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Election Day.

Mesa Mall, 2424 U.S. Highway 6&50, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. through Friday; 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Election Day.
