The 2018 midterm elections are winding down fast. You probably have noticed based on the number of commercials you are seeing on television and hearing on the radio that candidates are making one last pitch to convince you to fill in the bubble next to their name.
Colorado is an mail-in ballot state. Every registered voter in Colorado should have received their ballot in the mail. If you have not, you need to contact your respective county clerk's office. As you complete your ballot, remember that you really need it in the mail this week if it is guaranteed to arrive back to your clerk's office in time. One local election official tells KBLJ that if you wait past Friday that it is probably best that you deliver your ballot to an official drop off point or to the county clerk's office. Even if it is postmarked before election day, your ballot will not count if it is not in the possession of the election judges by 7:00 p.m. Tuesday.
If you have questions about voting, please contact your local county clerk's office.
On Election night, KBLJ and our sister station KLMR will have Southeast Colorado covered with coverage from Otero, Bent, Baca, Kiowa, Crowley, and Prowers Counties.
