Liz Olson, manager of elections for El Paso County, said today that she has received back about 13,300 of the 106,000 mail-in ballots that were sent out to voters.
Olson said it’s too early to draw any conclusions from those figures.
The election department usually receives a lot of ballots back right after they’re mailed out. Then there’s a lull. About five days before the election, the volume of returned ballots increases again, she said.
“It’s still pretty early,” Olson said.
The primary is Aug. 10. For more information on the candidates, go to The Gazette’s voter guide at http://hq.thevoterguide.org/v/csprings/index.do
