Election is winding down

By Pat Sunderland

Delta County election officials advise voters it's getting late to return your ballots by mail. To ensure your votes count, drop off your ballots at either the Delta County Courthouse at 501 Palmer Street in Delta or the North Fork Annex at 196 W. Hotchkiss Avenue in Hotchkiss. Both locations are equipped with a 24-hour drop-off box. Both locations will also be open Election Day (Nov. 3) from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. In addition, the polling center in the county courthouse will be open Saturday, Oct. 31, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Election results can be viewed at www.delta
