Reminders for Rifle voters in the Sept. 10 municipal election

Staff Report

Rifle City Clerk Lisa Cain provided these reminders for voters as they fill out and return their mail-in ballot:

• Remember to sign the affidavit on the outside of the return envelope. Election laws require that signature for the ballot to be counted.

• There are three options for turning in the ballots:

1) Put a first-class (46¢) stamp on the return envelope and drop it in the mail. Cain’s office must RECEIVE the ballot by 7 p.m. Election Day, Sept. 10 – a postmark won’t count.

2) Deliver the ballot in the return envelope to the city clerk’s office at Rifle City Hall, 202 Railroad Ave., between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. City Hall will be closed Monday, Sept. 2, for Labor Day and open on Election Day from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

3) Deliver the ballot in the return envelope to the Garfield County Clerk and Recorder’s Office, 144 E. Third St. in Rifle, between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, including Election Day (they will be closed Sept. 2 for Labor Day).

Voters, candidates, their supporters and those involved with the sales tax measure are reminded that no campaigning is allowed in or within 100 feet of City Hall. This includes parking vehicles with campaign signs or stickers on them, as well as wearing campaign buttons or stickers. Signs to this affect are planned to be posted in front of City Hall before the end of this week.
