Mesa County Elections Officials To Send Out Mail-In Ballot

As the fight over the state's voting machines continues in the state capitol, the Mesa County Government says it wants to let voters know what their options are now.

The Mesa County Elections Office is getting ready to send out a mass mailing to all county residents. In the mailing, people will find a voter registration form, and a mail–in ballot application.

The county says it normally sends packets like these out during the summer, but with the decertification of electronic voting machines, and the government still arguing over how to run the election, the county says the only for sure option is voting by mail-in ballot.

The county says they think the state is leaning towards an all paper ballot election. And that's a move they say is bad for the county.

The last day to register to vote is July 14.
