DENVER – More than 800 replacement ballots were not delivered to voters in Denver and Aurora by the U.S. Postal Service until Election Day, and the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office says it is exploring other options to prevent that from happening again.
Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold said her office was notified Friday that the 828 ballots weren’t delivered by the USPS until Tuesday, and a spokesperson for her office confirmed the ballots were for voters in Aurora and Denver.
Griswold said USPS did not notify her office despite being aware of the issue.
At an afternoon news conference, Colorado Elections Director Judd Choate said of the 828 ballots, 768 were from Arapahoe County and 60 were from Denver. Choate said of the 768, 664 ballots included the Aurora mayor’s race.
