County adds sixth 24-hour ballot box in Gypsum

Contact: Regina O’Brien, Clerk & Recorder, 970-328-8783, regina.obrien@eaglecounty.us

October 7, 2020 - 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 at https://bit.ly/3iG2r7k. Physical addresses are available at https://www.eaglecounty.us/Clerk/Voting_and_Elections/Upcoming_Elections

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.
