El Paso County Clerk and Recorder Bob Balink wants to remind residents they can become permanent mail-in voters and forever avoid standing in line at polling places.
Permanent mail-in voting became an option for Colorado voters in 2007, and the option is still available. Becoming a permanent mail-in voter simply means that mail-in ballots will be sent to you whether it is a “mail-in-only” election or not.
The designation also means:
• Voters will receive a mail-In ballot only for the 2010 Primary Election on Aug. 10.
• Voters will receive a mail-In ballot only for the 2010 General Election on Nov. 2.
Applications to become a mail-in voter are available at http://car.elpasoco.com/election. For more information, call 575-VOTE (8683).
