County adds sixth 24-hour ballot box in Gypsum

All ballot drop boxes open Friday, October 9th when ballots are mailed

 

The Eagle County Clerk and Recorder has added a sixth 24-hour ballot box located at the front door of the Town of Gypsum Municipal Building. The new box is in addition to the established 24-hour ballot boxes located in Avon, Edwards, Eagle, El Jebel and Basalt. A map of all ballot box locations is available here. Physical addresses are available on the Eagle County website.


24-hour ballot boxes provide a safe and secure method of returning ballots, allowing voters to return their voted ballots without walking into a building and coming into contact with others or with shared surfaces. They are sturdy, metallic, weather-resistant and bolted to the ground. Colorado law also requires that all drop boxes be kept lit and under 24-hour video surveillance.


The 24-hour ballot boxes are the most popular ballot return method for Eagle County voters, and with COVID-19 still likely to be present in our community during election season the county added one more external, secure way for voters to deliver their ballots.


All six 24-hour ballot boxes will open starting Oct. 9, the same day ballots are mailed.


No postage is required when using a 24-hour ballot box.


Voters needing in person services or who would prefer to return their ballot inside at a Voter Service and Polling Center may do so starting Oct.19 in Avon, Eagle and El Jebel. The Vail Voter Service and Polling Center opens Oct. 30.


For questions, please contact Eagle County Clerk & Recorder Regina O'Brien at regina.obrien@eaglecounty.us or (970) 328-8783.
