Colorado allows voting by mail or you can take your mailing ballot and deposit in a box in front of any polling station or you can vote in person. Back before mail in voting was done, we had large numbers of polling stations…then, they started to reduce the number for economical reasons. Wait times increased dramatically and they then switched to voluntary mail in votes. It was hugely popular and they expanded it to allow everyone to vote by mail (originally, it was by request only).
We still can have very long wait times for those that choose to vote in person since we only have a few polling stations. At least it is their own choice to risk the long lines. They have stayed open longer than listed to make sure anyone in line by the cutoff time does get to vote.
Our ballots are filled out and will be mailed Sunday evening or Monday morning. I will take them directly to our PO as it’s close and easy.
