Montrose Clerk and Recorder Apologizes for Error in Voter List for Olathe Fire District Election
The Montrose Clerk and Recorder’s Office provided a list of eligible voters to the Olathe Fire Protection District for their election on May 2. Unfortunately, this list included 16 and 17 year olds who are not eligible to vote. The Clerk and Recorder’s Office apologizes for the error and confusion. The Clerk and Recorder's Office gave the district a corrected list of eligible voters as soon as the error was noticed. Ballots were mailed to voters including approximately 90 ineligible juveniles from the list. If a juvenile received a ballot, please destroy it. The juvenile ballots will not be counted in the election.
When a person obtains a driver’s license, they are automatically registered to vote in Colorado. These individuals cannot vote until they turn 18 years old. Again, the Clerk and Recorder’s Office apologizes for the error and has added a step to ensure this mistake does not happen again.
