Larimer County Clerk and Recorder Angela Myers reminds all Larimer County voters that this November 5th Election is an all mail ballot election. Ballots will begin mailing on October 15 to all active registered voters in Larimer County.
It is imperative that voters sign and date their ballot envelopes before mailing. The signature on the ballot envelope is verified against signatures on file before the ballot can be processed.
“It’s important that all voters vote the mail ballot they receive rather than coming in for a replacement ballot.” Angela says. “In the past, we’ve seen voters relinquish their ballots and request a replacement ballot because of misinformation or the spreading of ‘wives tales’ implying that mail ballots aren’t counted. Obviously, this is incorrect, as we are now an all mail ballot state.”
“Please know that if you request a replacement ballot, it will be an exact duplicate of the mail ballot you received. Mail ballots are expensive to print and providing more than one per voter gets costly for taxpayers,” she said.
Replacement ballots are only necessary if a ballot has been damaged or lost, and replacements can be obtained at the Elections office or at any of the Voter Service and Polling Centers (see website at www.votelarimer.org for locations).
Any voter can visit the Clerk and Recorder’s Elections website at www.votelarimer.org to track the progress of his/her ballot and/or to find information about drop-off locations, should they wish to hand deliver the ballot. All ballots must be received by the Clerk & Recorder no later than 7p on Election Day, November 5th. Postmarks do not count as a received date.
Any elector experiencing difficulty with the ballot and/or voting process should contact the Larimer County Clerk and Recorder’s Elections office directly at 970/498-7820.
