EL PASO COUNTY – El Paso County voters had a long ballot, with many communities deciding on a full slate of contested countywide races as well as community issues.

There are several races we’re watching closely, including the Town of Palmer Lake’s vote on whether to legalize recreational marijuana and whether voters will vote to retain Judge Christopher Edward Acker. Acker was not recommended to be retained by the state’s office of judicial performance evaluation.
