Precincts to be combined for 2010 elections

Eagle County will combine several precincts into super polling places for this year’s general election. Burns and McCoy voters in precincts 10 and 11 who wish to vote at a polling place will have the option of voting at the McCoy Community Center. The Burns Baptist Church, which was a polling place in 2008, will become a drop-box only location and all registered voters in Burns will receive a ballot by mail, regardless of whether they have opted for permanent mail-in ballot status. Those who prefer to vote at the polls can surrender their mail ballot on Election Day and vote electronically at the McCoy Community Center. In addition, Edwards voters in precinct 4, which includes Homestead, as well as those in precinct 29, which encompasses Miller Ranch, Arrowhead and The Reserve, will all vote at the WECMRD Field House. Previously, precinct 4 voted at the Homestead Court Club and precinct 29 voted at Berry Creek Middle School.

According to Teak Simonton, Eagle County’s Clerk and Recorder, decisions about the number, location and configuration of polling places are based on a combination of many factors including staff resources, set-up logistics, post-election delivery of results, voter turnout and cost. “With very tight timelines and the incredibly complicated procedures we are required to follow, we must maximize our effectiveness and consolidate our efforts,” said Simonton. “Currently, the majority of voters in these precincts and throughout the county are choosing to get their ballots by mail or to vote early and both of these options will be available again this year,” she said. 

The county will conduct two elections in 2010, with the Democratic, Republican and Libertarian primary elections scheduled for Aug. 10 and the general election set for Nov. 2. The primary election will be conducted by mail ballot; voters affiliated with one of the three participating parties will automatically receive a ballot in the mail approximately 20 days before the election. Voted ballots can be returned by mail or dropped at any of the Eagle County Clerk’s Office locations in Eagle, Avon or El Jebel through 7 p.m. on Aug. 10. All three locations will offer replacement ballots and disabled access voting for the eight days prior to the election. Unaffiliated voters can also visit any location to affiliate and vote.

The Nov. 2 General Election will offer three options for voting including mail-in ballot, early voting and at-the-polls voting. Early voting will take place from 8 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday from Oct. 18 to 29. Those wishing to vote by mail must complete a mail-in ballot application no later than Oct. 26. Voter registration forms are available online, or call 970-328-8715 for more information.
