Thousands of ballots returned in El Paso County

EL PASO COUNTY, CO- El Paso County will have to shell out at least $70,000, after thousands of ballots were returned.

According to Clerk and Recorder Wayne Williams, 40,000 ballots have come back due to bad addresses.

If you've moved for whatever reason, and have not received a ballot yet, you need to contact the Clerk and Recorder's office to make sure you can still participate.

Even with the glitch, Williams says ballots are pouring in.

''We had about 46,000 people that have turned in ballots already," Williams told News 5. "It's a couple thousand ahead of where we were two years ago. We did mail out about 120,000 more ballots, so a very small increase."

We're taking a closer look at the problem and the cost, and will update this story with new information as we get it.

In Pueblo County, Clerk Gilbert Ortiz says about 12% of ballots have been returned.

If you don't have your ballot in the mail by Wednesday or Thursday at the latest, you need to drop them off by 7:00pm, November 5.
