!Get Out And Vote!

Early Voting started yesterday and my wife and I went today and cast our votes.

Five people in line ahead of us in Salida, and it still took us 25 minutes. If you are going to wait until election day, expect it to take hours. Last year it took me 1 hour at 7am on election day, 2 hours for my wife later in the day.

So go out and vote now! You will be happy to not wait in long lines in two weeks!

I thought early voting was only by mail, can you do it in person?

Yes you can go in person

Yes you can. It is usually at the county seat, at least up here in the mountains. When we lived in Summit, we would have to go to the court house in Breck. Here in Chaffee, the court house in Salida. You big city types will have more voting centers available to you.

gh,

There are three places in C Springs. One is at Chapel Hill, I think one is down town at the old city auditorium. I'm going to hit Chapel hills this week.

ABSOLUTELY vote early. I went to the La Plata County courthouse on Monday afternoon and breezed through the ridiculously long ballet... cheat sheet in hand. My wife did it yesterday and didn't have to wait. I have never voted early before, but the turnout this year is going to be enormous. I will miss chatting with my neighbors while waiting in line at our little mountain precinct...
