Early voting continues through Friday

With a week remaining before the Nov. 2 general election, the time residents have to participate in various early voting services is winding down.

Today is the last day residents can request a mail ballot be sent to them, Moffat County elections supervisor Stephanie Beckett said.

However, residents may pick up a mail-style ballot from the department to complete before the election through Friday, Beckett said.

Friday also marks the last day early voting services will be available to residents at the Moffat County Courthouse, 221 W. Victory Way.

Residents may vote by either paper or electronic ballot at the courthouse. The polls are open from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., and residents will need photo identification to vote.

As of Monday, 403 residents have voted early, Beckett said.

The elections department is still in the process of sending out mail ballots.

So far, the department has mailed out 2,131 ballots and received 775, as of Monday. Mail ballots may also be returned to the elections department by hand at the courthouse.

All ballots must be returned by 7 p.m. Nov. 2 to the elections department, Beckett said.

On Nov. 2, polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. There are four voting centers in Moffat County.

They are at Centennial Mall, 1111 W. Victory Way in Craig; Hamilton Community Center, 17400 S. Colorado Highway 13; Maybell Community Center, 103 Ellis St.; and the Dinosaur branch of the Moffat County Libraries, 400 W. School St.

Any Moffat County resident may vote at any of the county’s voting centers, but must have photo identification to vote.

For more information, call the elections department at 824-9120.
