Special Municipal Election ballots mailed

Ballots were mailed Mon., Dec. 24, 2012, to approximately 3,200 active registered voters for the Jan. 15, 2013, City of Salida Special Municipal Election.

Voters who do not receive a ballot soon should contact the Clerk’s Office at 530-2630 or in person at City Hall, 448 East First St., Suite 112. The office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Mondays through Fridays (except holidays) and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day.

Voters need to place postage on their return envelope. Voters may also drop off their ballots at the Clerk’s office at 448 East First St., Suite 112. Ballots that are not received by 7 p.m. on Election Day (Jan. 15) will not be counted.

No write-in candidate affidavits were returned to City Hall by the Dec. 26 deadline; therefore, there are no write-in candidates.

There are approximately 1,000 inactive voters in the City of Salida. These voters will not be mailed a ballot for this election. To check your voter registration status online, go to www.GoVoteColorado.com. Inactive voters may visit the Clerk’s office to update their information and be issued a ballot.

    Have we disenfranchised some voters by requiring postage (extra) to mail the ballot to the City Clerks office? Should the envelops have arrive postage prepaid?

    Why has this question not been raised in all of the prior mail in ballots? There have been several here in Chaffee. Why do you raise the issue on this one?? What adjenda do you have??

    No agenda! Just new to this community and have participated with mail in elections before where the municipality provided postage paid return envelops.

    Thank you for the explaination. Here, in Salida, you can walk to the polling place. This ain't Denver where one has to drive to get anywhere. Additionally, Chaffee County, which has had miltiple mail ballots has never included postage. The local standard may be different than elsewhere.

    At anyrate welcome, as a newer citizen, to this really remarkably wonderful community.
