As we get closer to the election, Mesa County is reminding people to verify all their voter information is correct. And it says it does not matter what party your affiliated with, everyone receives the same ballot and same questions.
There are two ways voters can change their information they either have to go online, or call the Mesa County Clerks office directly at (970) 244-1662.
The deadline to have your changes made or to register to vote is October 9th.
Mesa county officials say waiting until the last minute is the worst case scenario for everyone. It can cause setbacks come election day if your information is wrong.
It's also important that people are registered to vote in Mesa County if they are a resident here.
“The state law is you vote from where you resided 30 days prior to election day,” Shelia Reiner said. “It's important to be registered so you vote on the right ballot questions.”
For example, this year the Grand River Mosquito Control District will be voting on adding new parcels to the district. Officials say if you live in that area, you are going to want to vote this issue that affects you.
This year there will be fewer polling locations around Mesa County because the majority of registered voters are on the permanent mail in ballot.
People who receive the mail in ballot will be able to vote two weeks early. Officials say this will prevent lines and delays on Election Day.
