Texas Governor Rick Perry urged Delta County Republicans to “exhaust every avenue to win this election for America” at a rally at Republican headquarters Monday. He was joined by Congressman Kevin McCarthy of California, majority whip of the U.S. House of Representatives, and a number of elected officials from the Western Slope for a last-minute campaign tour. On Tuesday morning, county clerk Ann Eddins reported about 76 percent of Delta County’s active voters had already cast their ballots. About 84 percent of the close to 14,000 mail-in ballots had been turned in. “I believe we will have a record turnout for this election,” she said. County results will be posted at www.deltacounty independent.com as soon as they’re available Tuesday night.
