Early Voting Starts

Election day is less than two weeks away, on Nov. 5, but Monday marks two important dates for voters in the Roaring Fork Valley.

Monday is the first day for early voting at Voter Polling and Service Centers, where people can go to vote in-person instead of submitting a ballot in a drop-off box. Voting at Voter Polling and Service Centers will last from Oct. 28 through Nov. 5.

In Pitkin County, that voter center is at the County Administration and Sheriff’s Office. In Garfield County, voter centers are at the clerk’s offices in Glenwood Springs and Rifle. And in Eagle county they are at the Clerks and Recorder’s Offices in Eagle, Avon and El Jebel.

For those planning to request a ballot by mail, the deadline to submit an application is Monday, Oct. 28. Applications can be submitted by mail, at a voter registration agency, a local drivers’ license examination facility, or online.


Ballots can also be acquired at Voter Polling and Service Centers through election day.
