It’s voter preparation time

Aspen Times Staff Report
Aspen, CO, Colorado

ASPEN ” The Pitkin County Clerk and Recorder’s Office has sent out 12,000 information cards to active and inactive voters throughout the county, providing them the opportunity to update their addresses and let them know where their polling places are.

Clerk and Recorder Janice Vos Caudill is urging people to register to vote now and update their information before the Oct. 6 deadline. With dozens of questions on the ballot this November, Vos Caudill expects her short-staffed office to be inundated. She is trying to get as much front-end work complete as possible.

“I want it to be as smooth as possible,” she said.

Voters also can request mail-in ballots, which will be available in mid-October. The last day to mail in a ballot is Oct. 28. Voters also can sign up to be a permanent mail-in voter. Applications can be found at http://www.aspenpitkin.com/depts/5/elections.cfm, or can be obtained by calling (970) 920-5180.

Early voting will take place between Oct. 20-31. Pitkin County residents can vote in person at the county annex building, located at 530 E. Main St., Aspen.

Permanent and temporary staff at the clerk and recorder’s office will be on hand in coming weeks to update voter information, and count mail-in and early votes.
