CDOT Encourages Motorists To Preare For Winter

Posted: 10/22/2012 - Winter is right around the corner and CDOT wants to encourage all motorists to be prepared. This week, October 21-27 is Colorado Winter Weather Awareness Week. CDOT and the Office of Emergency Management are offering some tips on how to prepare your vehicle and yourself for the cold weather. They say the first step in preparing for winter is ensuring that you have an emergency kit in your car in case you are stranded. If you find yourself stranded experts recommend staying in your car, turn on your flashers, call for help and wait until it arrives. Your emergency kit should include the following: • Flares/reflectors to signal for help and warn other motorists • Sturdy scraper/snow brush/snow shovel to clear snow • Battery or crank-powered radio to listen to emergency broadcasts • Flashlight with extra batteries or crank-powered flashlight • Survival blanket or sleeping bag • Chemical hand warmers • Extra set of clothes, including coat, hat, mittens, boots, etc. • Water for each person and pet in your car • Food items containing protein such as nuts and energy bars; canned fruit and a portable can opener • First Aid Kit and essential medications • Tire chains and tow strap • Non-clumping kitty litter/sand for traction • Jumper cables • Extra cloth or paper towels for cleanup if necessary • Deck of cards or board game for entertainment In addition to the emergency kit, be sure to check your vehicle now and before any road trip to make sure it is in safe operating condition. • Windshield Wiper Fluid • Heater/Defroster • Wiper Blades • Antifreeze • Lights • Fuel System and a Full Tank of Gas • Ignition • Exhaust System • Tire Tread • Battery Brakes In addition to the emergency kit and vehicle preparedness, it is important for motorists to keep speeds down during inclement weather and give snow plows room to do their job. Motorists are also encouraged to plan ahead when traveling by calling 511 or visiting for real-time road information.

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: 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. For information about any other election questions visit:
