Today’s the day; vote if you haven’t

A long, contentious campaign season is over — nationally, statewide and locally. will provide live coverage tonight at

While Coloradans have had their ballots for more than two weeks and many have mailed theirs in or dropped them off, Garfield County Clerk Jean Alberico expects 30 to 40 percent of the total ballots to be returned on Election Day. Voter service centers are open until 7 p.m.

Voters who have their ballots can return them by 7 p.m. to one of the two 24/7 drop boxes in the county — one in Glenwood Springs outside the Garfield County Courthouse at 109 Eighth St., and the other outside the new Rifle administration building at 195 W. 14th St. Building D.

Other drop-off locations include town halls in Carbondale, New Castle, Parachute and Silt.

In Colorado, voters can still register on Election Day at a service center.

Those locations today:

• Garfield County Courthouse in Glenwood Springs, 109 Eighth St., Suite 200

• County Administration Building in Rifle, 195 W. 14th St., Building D

• Carbondale Town Hall, 511 Colorado Ave.

• Glenwood Springs Community Center, 100 Wulfsohn Road

• New Castle Branch Library, 402 Main St.

• Parachute Branch Library, 244 Grand Valley Way

• Silt Branch Library, 680 Home Ave.

Ballot drop-off sites

• County courthouse, Glenwood Springs, east entrance

• Carbondale Town Hall, 511 Colorado Ave.

• New Castle Town Hall, 450 W. Main St.

• Silt Town Hall, 231 N. Seventh St.

• Parachute Town Hall, 222 Grand Valley Way

Residents do not have to use the voting service center in their town because all voting service centers are being supplied with ballots from each municipality that has local issues on the ballot this year.

Alberico said voters should make sure to sign the voter affidavit that comes with their ballot, and avoid letting somebody else sign their ballot for them. Bipartisan election judges will be evaluating each signature to makes sure it matches signatures on file.

And for those helpful individuals, election laws limit a person to returning no more than 10 ballots.
