Red Feather ballots due today

GLENWOOD SPRINGS – Today is the final day for the Red Feather Ridge mail-in election. Ballots are due by 7 p.m. this evening.

City voters who still wish to cast a vote in the election should deliver their ballots directly to the city clerk’s office on the third floor of City Hall, 101 W. 8th St.

Ballots dropped in the mail today will not be delivered in time to be counted, said City Clerk Robin Clemons.

The election asks voters whether to uphold or overturn the City Council’s annexation and zoning of the Red Feather Ridge subdivision on lower Four Mile Road.

A “yes” vote favors the annexation, while a “no” vote opposes it.

If upheld, the annexation will also extend the city’s urban growth boundary to include the 132-acre ranch.

Clemons mailed out 5,200 ballots in late May, and said she has received 1,300 ballots as of Monday. Another 1,200 ballots were returned through the mail for voters who no longer live at their registered address.

Clemons said election judges will spend this afternoon preparing the ballots for counting, and actual counting will begin at 7 p.m.

“We should have results by 8 p.m.,” Clemons said.
