Duplicate Ballot Questions

Updated: 10/18/2012 - Some voters are receiving two election ballots in the mail and are not sure what to do. Election officials say it’s something that happens each election to less than one percent of voters. But they want to reassure voters they are prepared for it and that no one will get to cast two votes. The ballot has to go through four steps before the vote is counted. Election officials say it won’t make it past the first step. That’s because each ballot has a bar-code, and that bar-code is registered to a specific voter. They say the computer that scans the ballots is designed to make sure only one ballot is counted for each voter. If you receive two ballots, call election officials. There is a number on the ballot that you can read them, and they can tell you which ballot to fill out, and which to shred. You can reach them at 575-VOTE (8683) You can also check to see if the election office received your mail-in ballot by visiting: www.GoVoteColorado.com It's not too late to apply for Mail-In Ballots. The deadline is Oct. 30th. If you want to watch how the mail ballot process works just visit the you-tube link below.

"Grandparent Scam" Protection Tips

Updated: 10/17/2012 - Seniors are still picking up the phone and fall victim to what’s called the “Grandparent Scam.” The caller convinces the older adult their grand kid is in trouble and asks them to wire emergency cash.
