43 percent have voted

Posted By on Wed, May 11, 2011 at 3:00 PM

As of May 10, 65,042 of you — or 43.4 percent of those who received a mail ballot — have voted.

There are still days to go until the election, so there's plenty of time to get those ballots in. But these days, you'll want to drop off your ballot in person to ensure it gets where it needs to be before the cut-off of May 17 at 7 p.m. That's Tuesday, by the way.

Drop-off locations are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday until May 16. On the official election day of Tuesday, May 17, they’ll accept ballots from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Locations are: City clerk’s office, 30 S. Nevada Ave., #101; Colorado Springs Senior Center, 1514 N. Hancock Ave.; Fire Station No. 8, 3737 Airport Road; Fire Station No. 17, 3750 Tutt Blvd.; Fire Station No. 19, 2490 Research Pkwy.; Fire Station No. 20, 6755 Rangewood Drive; and Gold Hill Police Substation, 955 W. Moreno Ave.

Inactive voters (classified that way if they did not vote in the November 2010 election) can go to the city clerk’s office, reactivate their status and pick up a runoff ballot during regular business hours from now through May 17.

Inactive voters whose name or address changed since they last voted must start the activation process by making necessary changes to their registration at an El Paso County elections office. Find those locations online at
