It's primary election day and many polling place in El Paso County have changed since 2008, the last precinct polling locating election, as a result of the county closing and consolidating 87 locations. Elections in 2009 were all mail-in only in the county.
Clerk and recorrder Bob Balink says the county is saving nearly $180,000 by opening fewer polling places today. Balink says all eligble voters in the county were mailed a voter information card clarifying the change in polling location.
But if you have lost the card or have moved since the last election you can find your polling place listed on your sample ballot. If you don't have a sample ballot handy, here's the online information.
If you have a mail-in ballot--it's too late to put it in the mail. Take it to any polling place, Centennial Hall, the county building at Powers and Airport, or the Union Town Center branch.
In Pueblo, it's a mail-in vote only. Drop off ballots at Pueblo City Hall, Pueblo County Clerk and Recorders Office or Pueblo West Library.
