Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 3, but registered voters in Colorado will receive mail-in ballots after Oct. 9. With national concern about the veracity of mail-in ballots, Colorado has become a focal point. Colorado began statewide vote by mail in 2013, although some counties used it before that.

A national pre-election mailer from the United States Postal Service arrived in mailboxes across the region this past weekend. Colorado Election Officials are warning residents about the misinformation that was distributed. KSUT’s Sarah Flower has more.

Instead, voters across the state took the ballots they received in the mail and returned them primarily to drop-off boxes.
