After three of the most agonizing presidential debates - perhaps in the history of the world -  mail-in ballots are going out and it's time to vote for the candidate of your choice.

Mail ballots are going out to voters in Mesa County this week, and so by the weekend, everyone who is getting a ballot should have it in their mailbox. Those ballots will need to be received by the county clerk no later than 7:00PM on November 8 in order to be counted.

Starting on Monday, October 24, voter service and polling centers will be open for those that would like to get in and vote prior to the official election day.

Three polling locations in Mesa County will be open on Monday.

Locations will be open for voting from 8:00AM-5:00PM Monday thru Friday, and 9:00AM-1:00PM on Saturdays, and 7:00AM-7:00PM on election day.

Other Mesa County voting centers will be open starting November 4 including the Fruita Civic Center, the CMU University Center, and Goodwill. The DeBeque Community Center will be open for voting on November 8.

Regardless of which side you are one, we encourage you to vote -- and to make your vote count!
