Blue books delayed due to printing error

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- If you have been looking for your blue book to come in the mail and you still haven’t gotten it, The Colorado Secretary of State’s Office says it was because of a printing error.

Officials say a printing error happened when a blue book printer’s settings defaulted to only physical addresses, and did not account for P.O. boxes.

Blue books were not delivered in 36 counties to residents that use P.O. boxes.

The Colorado Legislative Council says 90,000 of the informational books for voters have been resent, but the issue is still causing problems for those that can only use a P.O. box.

“Because of the undeliverable status of some of those, and you know, the time it takes to reprint, and re-mail, not to mention the cost, that just makes it extremely tight," said Mesa County Clerk and Recorder, Sheila Reiner.

“I don’t get the newspaper, I could get it online, but its hard on a cell phone to breeze through the pages you know? So yeah, not very well informed this year," said Grand Junction Resident and truck driver, Greg Tovrea.

The blue book that had the printing glitch only covers state ballot issues, and another one will be sent out that covers local TABOR issues.
