Just a little more than 20 percent of registered voters in El Paso County have already cast ballots in the Nov. 6 general election, county Clerk and Recorder Wayne Williams reports today. The turnout breaks down like this:
Here's the clerk's footnote:
*This is the more accurate denominator to use for determining turnout. Total registered voters includes those who have moved and do not live here anymore. While there are some who may still be eligible to vote (e.g., they moved within the county and did not update their mailing address) who are not included in the active + IFTV sum, it is a more accurate number to use for turnout than the total registered voters number. (As you may recall from a prior e-mail, this is the number we used for our ballot order as the base and we then subtracted PMIV voters to determine the number of ballots to order.)
Early voting continues through Nov. 2. For more information on voting, go here.
