Aspen mayoral runoff election is today between Mullins, Torre
Aspen voters will decide today who will be the new mayor the next two years.
Today marks the runoff election date between mayoral candidates Ann Mullins and Torre, who failed in the March 5 municipal election to get a majority vote per the city’s home rule charter.
They’ll be stumping their final hours today around town, urging people to vote.
As of Monday evening, 2,089 people had cast their votes in this mail-in election, according to City Clerk Linda Manning.
Around 6,000 people are registered to vote in Aspen.
City Hall is the only place Aspen voters can cast their votes today; they should not be mailed.
Manning urges people who are voting today to vote in person rather than drop off their ballot, which requires a lengthy verification process from election judges.
Voting will take place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. in council chambers in the basement of City Hall. Polls close at 7 p.m. Ballots will not be counted after that.
City officials will tally the votes and announce a winner around 8 p.m. The Aspen Times will post results as soon as they are available at aspentimes.com.
Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.
