Ballots for the November election were mailed to active, registered voters Tuesday, Moffat County Elections Supervisor Stephanie Beckett said.
On this year's ballot are five school board candidates vying for open seats in districts 1, 3 and 5. The District 7 seat is also available, but no candidates emerged and the school board will address the vacancy after the election.
Also on the ballot is state tax question Proposition 103, which proposes to increase public school funding through increased income and sales taxes.
This year, the election in Moffat County is being conducted entirely by mail, Beckett said. Ballots may be returned to the elections office by mail or by dropping the ballot in election boxes situated throughout the county.
Moffat County Clerk and Recorder Lila Herod said there remains confusion about what it means to be an active, registered voter. She said she wants to make sure people understand that if they did not vote in the gubernatorial election last year, they may not automatically receive a ballot.
"If you don't receive a ballot there is probably a reason why," Herod said. "But, just because you didn't receive a ballot in the mail doesn't mean you can't vote."
Registered voters who believe they may be inactive can call Beckett at 824-9120 or visit http://www.govotecolorado.com to update their status.
Although the election is being conducted by mail, residents who would prefer to cast their votes on an electronic machine may do so at the clerk's office between now and Oct. 31.
Residents preferring to vote in person must surrender their mail-in ballot to the elections office.
The electronic voting machine is located in the elections office at the Moffat County Courthouse, 221 W. Victory Way.
There will be no polling locations on Election Day and residents will not be permitted to vote in person after Oct. 31.
