Today's the deadline to register to vote in the May 17 mayoral run-off election between Steve Bach and Richard Skorman.

If you voted in the November 2010 General Election or the April 5, 2011 Municipal Election, you are considered an eligible, active voter.

If you need to register as a new voter, you must do so by April 18. The new voter registration form and more information are available on www.springsgov.com/election at the Register to Vote page - http://www.springsgov.com/Page.aspx?NavID=1200.

If you are an inactive voter, you can update your registration by April 18 to have a ballot mailed to you. After April 18, inactive voters with no changes to their registration (such as name or address) can pick up a ballot from the City Clerk's office beginning April 28 through Election Day, May 17, 2011. Inactive voters who need to make changes to their registration will have to do so first at an El Paso County Elections office.

Ballots for the May 17 Mayoral Run-Off Election are scheduled to be mailed on April 27 to all eligible, active voters within Colorado Springs city limits.

All ballots must be returned (not just postmarked) by 7 p.m. on May 17, 2011 to be counted. Ballots can be returned by mail or dropped off at one of the drop-off locations listed:

    It's even simpler than that Tom: Career Politician from the Old Regime = Dick Skorman. Didn't vote for either candidate initially, but "Steve Bach is the clear choice" to move our city forward now.

    It's simple: Bach--Conservative; Skorman--Liberal. Which do you want for our city?

    Geez Nath - why don't you move to Iraq.

    @ Nath. You have my attention on this one. You are absolutely right!!! In person, with I.D., birth certificate and proof of residency.

    There was testimony from someone who worked on the crooked voting machines. This stuff is real and people still blow it off. They want to believe in the dream so badly. But if it isn't on the network news it doesn't exist.

    I have all but lost any confidence in our election process. Online registration and mail-in ballots are just prime for election fraud. Registration should be IN PERSON at the County office with more than one proof of who you are and/or proof of citizenship. Voting should be at your assigned polling place with photo ID issued by the State and you should have to dip your finger in a bottle of indelible ink after casting your ballot.
