Details Released About Recall Election

The El Paso County Clerk and Recorder's office has released details about the recall election time frame and procedures for Senator John Morse.

All active, registered voters in Senate district 11 will receive a mail-in ballot. Ballots will be mailed to military and overseas voters by August 9. Ballots will be mailed to local voters starting August 19.

There will be two sections on the ballot. One will ask whether or not Senator John Morse should be recalled. The second section will allow voters to choose a successor candidate.
