First wave of mail-in ballots sent to El Paso County voters

The first wave of mail-in ballots for the 2012 election were mailed Monday by the El Paso County Clerk & Recorder's Election Department.

Today 202,948 ballots were mailed to the voters of El Paso County who requested a mail-in ballot. That is 35 percent higher than four years ago when the County mailed just over 151,000 Mail-In Ballots for the entire election.

It is not too late to apply for a Mail-In Ballot if a voter still wishes to request one. The deadline to apply for a Mail-In Ballot is Tuesday, October 30. Voters can sign up for a Mail-In Ballot by one of the three options below.
