Mail-only ballot revisits Denver’s election system

A special election is under way in Denver and the deadline for voting is Jan. 30.

The election is by mail-only ballot. It asks voters if they wish to eliminate the Denver Election Commission and make the clerk and recorder an elected position responsible for conducting elections in Denver.

To vote in the Jan. 30 election, Denver voters can mail in their ballots or drop them off at one of a number of locations. The location closest to the University of Denver is the District 3 police station at 1625 S. University Blvd.

Other drop-off locations include: the Athmar, Barnum, Eisenhower, Harvey Park, Montbello, Montclair, and Scheitler recreation centers; the Tattered Cover bookstores at 1628 16th St. and 2526 E. Colfax Ave.; and the Wellington Webb Municipal Office Building at 201 W. Colfax Ave.

These locations will accept ballots from Jan. 22–26 and Jan. 29 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Jan. 30 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Voters also can take their ballots directly to the Election Commission office at 303 W. Colfax Ave. Jan. 22–26 and Jan. 29 from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Jan. 30 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. A curbside drop-off will operate on Court Place between Colfax Avenue and 14th Street on Jan. 30 until 7 p.m.

Elections officials must receive ballots no later than 7 p.m. on Jan. 30.

For further information, call the Election Commission at 720-913-8683.
