Pueblo County Officials Finished Counting Ballots

All the ballots from Tuesday's election are now counted in Pueblo County.

There were still a couple of thousand left Tuesday night when County Clerk Gilbert Ortiz called it quits for the evening, telling 11 News his staff was tired, so he sent them home to rest in order to avoid mistakes.

Ortiz says that part of the reason his staff couldn't finish counting Tuesday night was due to record-setting turnout: 47 percent of the county turned out to vote. About 15 percent of those ballots came in the last two days.

The final unofficial totals are posted on kktv.com under "Election Results" on our home page.

    Are "BO" and his family counting them or filling them in?

    First, my husband & I vote in every election. This year I voted by mail but he never received an at-home ballot. WHY? Second, why are we voting on the first Tuesday in October when every calendar lists Nov. 8, the second Tuesday in October as "Election Day". I know several people who missed this election simply because it never occured to them that it would NOT be on "Election Day".

      Deb, I assume your husband took a little bit of responsibility for his vote and called the Clerk's office? The postal system is good, but it's not perfect. Things get lost. We all have stories of lost/late/misdirected mail. It's not a conspiracy. Second, people need to pay attention. The date was all over the news. It's not a Pueblo issue, so I'm not sure what Ortiz can do about it. if you really want an answer to your question, ask the right organization: elections@sos.state.co.us
