Nearly 1,500 Red Feather ballots returned so far

Glenwood Springs voters returned 1,449 ballots for the special election on the annexation and zoning of Red Feather Ridge as of Wednesday afternoon, according to City Clerk Robin Clemons.

Clemons mailed out 5,222 ballots to registered city voters two weeks ago.

The single-question ballot asks voters whether to uphold or overturn City Council’s action to annex the 132-acre, 149-lot Red Feather Ridge subdivision on Four Mile Road.

The annexation action also extends the city’s urban growth boundary.

A “yes” vote upholds the council’s action, while a “no” vote overturns it.

The election day is Tuesday, June 24, but no polling places will be set up. The election is entirely by mail.

Ballots must be returned to the clerk’s office at Glenwood Springs City Hall by 7 p.m. on June 24.

Ballots postmarked on that date but received later will not be counted. To safely return a ballot by mail, it should be sent no later than June 18.

Ballots may also be delivered by voters directly to City Hall up to the deadline.
