For those with illness, disabilities or who can’t be present to vote at the polls in the September recall election, emergency ballots will be available. Absentee ballots will not be issued, Pueblo County Clerk and Recorder Gilbert “Bo” Ortiz said Tuesday. Emergency ballots, in this special election, are similar to absentee in a general election, but Ortiz urged voters to cast their ballots at polling centers.
“If someone has an emergency and an elector who cannot vote and has to leave from their county, we are working on the forms you’ll need to fill out and those will be available on our website soon enough,” Ortiz said.
For people in health care facilities wanting to vote, Ortiz said, election judges from both political parties will deliver ballots.
