On the calendar, Nov. 3 is listed as election day but, Arapahoe
County can begin voting very soon because the mail-in ballots for
this year’s election go out in the mail Oct. 13.
“The ballots will be mailed to about 260,000 county residents
for this election,” said Nancy Doty, Arapahoe County Clerk and
Recorder. “Residents should note that this year not all active
registered voters receive a ballot because there are quite a few
areas that are not holding election and there are no state or
county issues on the ballot. Therefore, ballots only got to
residents in areas that are having elections. A resident who has a
question about whether or not a mail-in ballot should have arrived
or, for those who are voting but do not receive the ballot by Oct.
21 should call the county election division at 303-795-4511.”

requires 61 cents to return the ballot by mail or the ballot can be
taken to one of the drop-off locations throughout the county

district has candidates for the district seat on the ballot while

ballots. This year, there are 48 different ballot types, Doty
