SUMMIT COUNTY – Early voting is underway in Summit County for the 2019 Coordinated Election. The Summit County Clerk & Recorder is encouraging voters to complete their ballots and return them by mail or in person by 7 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 5.  

The Summit County Clerk & Recorder’s Office mailed a ballot to each active registered voter in the county during the week of Oct. 14. Any voter who has not received a ballot should visit the Clerk & Recorder at the Summit County Courthouse in Breckenridge during regular business hours to receive a replacement ballot.

To find election information, voters can take advantage of the following online resources:

  • The Colorado Secretary of State website allows citizens to register to vote and check whether completed ballots have been received by their county clerk: www.GoVoteColorado.com.
  • The Summit County Clerk & Recorder’s website contains information on Voter Service Polling Centers, secure 24-hour ballot drop box locations, sample ballots and more: www.summitcountyco.gov/vote.

“Voting by mail has been the most favored method of voting in Summit County in past elections," Summit County Clerk & Recorder Kathy Neel said. "The Colorado mail ballot election model provides a convenient way to make your voice heard in Summit County elections. If voters need to vote on a machine in person, they can do so before or on Election Day. Poll workers are ready to assist you.”

Voters can return their ballots by mail in the envelopes provided or by dropping them off in ballot drop boxes, which are under 24-hour surveillance. The boxes are secure, outdoors, accessible 24 hours a day and spread throughout the county in five locations:

  • Dillon Town Hall, 275 Lake Dillon Dr., Dillon
  • Frisco Town Hall, 1 Main St., Frisco
  • Summit County North Branch Library, 651 Center Cir., Silverthorne
  • Summit County Main Branch Library, Summit County Commons, 0037 Peak One Dr., Frisco
  • Summit County Courthouse, 208 E. Lincoln Ave., Breckenridge.

Voters can also drop off their ballots in person inside the Summit County Courthouse or any of the Voter Service Polling Centers up until 7 p.m. on Election Day.

Early voting is available at the Summit County Courthouse during the following dates and times:

  • 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday, Oct. 28 through Friday, Nov. 1, and Monday, Nov. 4
  • 8 a.m. to 12 noon, Saturday, Nov. 2.

Voters can obtain ballots to take with them during these time periods if they prefer to vote at home.

On Election Day (Nov. 5), voters will be able to vote in person (electronically or on a paper ballot), turn in mail ballots and obtain replacement ballots at the following three voting centers:

  • Summit County Courthouse, 208 E. Lincoln Ave., Breckenridge
  • Silverthorne Pavilion, 400 Blue River Pkwy., Silverthorne
  • Summit County Community and Senior Center, 0083 Nancy’s Pl., Frisco.

All registered Summit County voters can vote at any drop box, early-voting location or voting center in Summit County, regardless of which precinct they live in.

Voters who have not mailed their ballots by Nov. 2 are encouraged to drop off their ballots in person at a 24-hour drop box or voting center. All mail ballots must be received in the Clerk & Recorder’s Office, a ballot drop box or a voting center by 7 p.m. on Election Day, regardless of postmark date.

The Clerk & Recorder’s Office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day. Please note that all non-election services of the Summit County Clerk’s Office, including motor vehicle titles and registration, will be closed during Election Day.

“We urge people to plan ahead on any business they need to conduct with our office in early November,” Neel said. “On Election Day, we have all hands on deck to ensure that voting and ballot-counting go smoothly and efficiently. We appreciate the community’s cooperation and understanding.”

The Summit County Elections Office counts all valid mail ballots in the same manner as valid ballots submitted in person, regardless of the outcome or closeness of any race.
