DENVER (AP) – County clerks say hundreds of ballots for this year’s county and state election are being returned because they cannot be delivered.
Eagle County Clerk and Recorder Teak Simonton says about 1,000 ballots out of more than 24,000 have been returned.
Routt County elections deputy Vicki Weber says nearly 680 of more than 11,700 ballots have been sent back by the U.S. Postal Service
Most are being returned because voters have moved and not changed their addresses.
Under Colorado law, local clerks are responsible for elections.
