VAIL, Colorado – Early voting for the Vail Town Council election begins Oct. 22. Voters may cast ballots in person from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Oct. 30 in the Vail Municipal Building, 75 S. Frontage Rd.

Mail-in ballot request forms are available for download from the town’s Web site at http://www.vailgov.com or for pick up from the front desk of the Vail Municipal Building with requests due to the Town Clerk’s office by Oct. 30. The ballots will be mailed on or before Oct. 22 and must be returned by 7 p.m. Nov. 3.

The Nov. 3 election is an at-the-polls format with all voting taking place at the town of Vail Municipal Building from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. However, voters who receive mail-in ballots for this election must return the completed ballot to participate in the election. Anyone receiving a mail-in ballot becomes ineligible to vote at the polls.

There are 4,058 voters eligible to participate in the upcoming election, including 2,950 active voters and 1,108 inactive voters. Of those, 1,111 Vail voters will automatically receive a mail-in ballot for the election. This is because as voters filled out their voter registration forms with Eagle County, they selected the option to receive permanent mail-in ballots for all elections.

During the last regular municipal election in 2007, there were 3,900 eligible voters and 946 votes cast in the Vail election, including 299 who voted early or by mail.

This year’s election will seat four of seven Vail town council members from a field of nine candidates. For more information, contact Town Clerk Lorelei Donaldson at 970-479-2136.
