GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Most Colorado counties shipped out ballots Monday, ahead of local elections.
In Mesa County, 93,000 ballots will be arriving in mailboxes over the next few days. While it may not have the sizzle of last year's presidential election, the issues in this year's local coordinated elections may matter more to your community.
Mesa County Clerk and Recorder Sheila Reiner said she projects turnout will be between 50 to 70 percent. That is still higher than many areas across the nation see during off-year local elections.
Mail-in balloting helps with that. You can return your ballot that way, or by dropping off at 24-hour drop box locations throughout the county.
If you are registered, you should get your ballot next few days in your mailbox. If you don't get one, or if you have not registered, contact your local election office immediately.
Election Day is November 7th.
