Pitkin County, Colorado voter centers open now for walk-in, drop-off voting
Colorado residents who want to vote in person can now cast their ballots at voter centers around the state.
The Colorado Secretary of State’s Office says voter centers opened in all 64 counties Monday and will remain open through Nov. 6, Election Day.
The voting center for Pitkin County is in the county’s new administration offic at 530 East Main St. in Aspen. The office is no longer operating out of the temporary locations at the Ute Building or Aspen Jewish Community Center.
Mail-in ballots were sent to active voters earlier this month and the overwhelming majority of Colorado voters use them. In the 2016 election, 7 percent of Colorado voters used voter centers.
Voters returning ballots by mail must ensure they arrive by 7 p.m. on Election Day. Postmarks don’t count.
Voters can also drop off ballots at voter centers.
Coloradans who want to register to vote or update their information can do so online by Oct. 29 or go to a voter center.
Eagle County Detention Facility can house Pitkin County inmates on a temporary basis, but a long-term arrangement is doubtful, Sheriff James van Beek said Friday.
