You Vote By Mail, County Saves Money

El Paso County Commissioners have decided to go ahead with a plan to conduct the November 3, 2009 election by mail ballot.

They've been told it will save the county $242,000, as opposed to setting up traditional "polling places". And they say right now they need all the savings they can get.

Commissioner Jim Bensberg said, “I would much prefer a polling place election but at a time when we’re laying people off, many of our employees haven’t had raises for three years and County offices can only be open four days a week this is what we have to do to save this amount of money.”
