For the first time in recent city history, identification is required. The City Clerk’s office is reminding voters to bring ID to the polls. Acceptable forms include state-issued driver’s licenses, valid passports, utility bills, paycheck stubs or bank statements showing the voter’s name and address, U.S. military ID cards, Medicare/Medicaid cards and birth certificates.

Voters listed in Precincts 1, 2 and 3 will vote the Rio Grande meeting room next door to the Pitkin County Library. Those registered in Precincts 4, 5 and 7 will vote in the Schultz Health and Human Services Building on Castle Creek Road next door to Aspen Valley Hospital. Anyone with questions about which precinct they fall under may call 920-5000.

Candidates for mayor are incumbent Mick Ireland, interim Councilwoman Ruth Kruger and former TV-radio talk-show host Andrew Kole. Candidates for two seats on the council are LJ Erspamer, Adam Frisch, Marcia Goshorn, incumbent Steve Skadron, Cliff Weiss and Scott Writer.
