Steamboat Springs About 400 Republican primary ballots have been turned in to the Routt County Clerk and Recorder’s Office. The final day of the primary is Aug. 10, but Clerk’s Office officials say primary voters should have their ballots in the mail at least a week before then.
Routt County Election Supervisor Vicki Weber said all ballots should be in the mail no later than Aug. 3 to ensure they get to the Clerk’s Office in time. That also is the last day for voters to drop off ballots at one of the approved drop-off sites around Routt County. Those sites include The Clark Store, Hayden Town Hall, Oak Creek Town Hall and Yampa Town Hall.
Weber said 8,000 ballots were issued in the Republican primary, which features the only locally contested race. That race pits fellow GOPers Garrett Wiggins and Nick Bosick against one another for the right to square off with Routt County Sheriff Gary Wall, a Democrat, in the November general election.
However, Democrats and Republicans can vote on contested races for one of Colorado’s U.S. Senate seats, for example. There also are other contested races at the regional and statewide level for members of both parties to vote on.
Between Aug. 3 and 10, completed primary ballots will be accepted only at the Routt County Clerk and Recorder’s Office, located in the historic Routt County Courthouse on Lincoln Avenue between Fifth and Sixth streets.
Voters who are affiliated with Republican or Democratic parties still can request a ballot through Aug. 3 and can request a replacement as needed.
Weber said all ballots require a regular 44-cent stamp if they are returned through the mail.
