Weak early turnout for AVH Elections

May 1, 2016

As of May 1st, 1,678 ballots have been cast in the Aspen Valley Hospital Board of Director election. That’s only 14 percent of eligible voters.

There hasn’t been an AVH election in six years, and almost five thousand ballots were cast at that time.

The election ends tomorrow at 7pm. Residents should walk their ballots in to the hospital instead of mailing to ensure receipt. Eligible voters who did not receive a mail ballot can pick one up at the hospital today and tomorrow.

The ballots will be hand counted and will need to be certified by an election judge before the results are final.
