|Denver Coordinated Election to be conducted by mail
(Denver) – The November 1, 2011 Coordinated Election will be conducted as a mail ballot election. Ballots will be mailed to voters in mid-October, and voters will have the option of mailing their ballots back or dropping them off at a Voter Service Center.
“Along with the cost savings created by conducting the upcoming election by mail ballot, an additional benefit is that Denver voters who have grown accustomed to using mail ballots won’t have to adjust to another voting model this year,” said Denver Clerk and Recorder Debra Johnson.
As an additional cost-saving measure, the Denver Elections Division will reduce the number of Voter Service Centers, but will offer drive-through ballot drop-off at all locations for added voter convenience.
Denver elections officials have spent three years working on enhanced mail ballot procedures to make them cost effective and convenient for Denver’s voters. Efforts have included: establishing Voter Service Centers across the city, developing Ballot TRACE technology to provide voters with a method to track their ballots through the postal system, and procedures to maximize efficiency, accuracy and transparency.
More information will be posted in the coming weeks on the Denver Elections website, www.denvervotes.org.
