COLORADO SPRINGS – County clerks across the state began mailing ballots to Colorado voters Monday a little more than three weeks until election day.

Voters have until 7 p.m. on Nov. 6, 2018 to turn in their ballots. If you’re mailing your ballot back, it’s best to make sure it’s in the mail at least a week before election day to ensure it arrives before that deadline.

You can also check the status of your ballot to ensure it was mailed and that it was counted.

Voters should expect a long ballot this year, due to 13 statewide ballot questions and a number of contested races locally. In El Paso County, the long ballot cost an extra $140,000 to print.

With a long ballot comes a lot of questions about the issues, what’s on your ballot and more information about who you’re voting for.
