There are four additional drop-off sites throughout the county where voters may deposit voted ballots if they choose not to return their voted ballot by mail. The Garfield County Clerk has partnered with Town Clerks to provide drop-off locations closer to home for voters since the 2006 General Election. Many voters prefer to drop their ballot at a supervised, secure location rather than dropping their ballot in the mail. Garfield County extends our thanks to the Town Clerks for providing this service to the citizens of Garfield County.The Town Hall drop- off sites will be open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. including Election Day, Aug. 10, 2010.
