Over 2,000 mail-in ballots have been sent out to Prowers County registered voters for the June 26 primary.
Provisional ballots are also available at these voting precincts for voters who are casting their ballots out of their district. The precincts are also a drop off point for voters who have filled out their mail-in ballot, but want to save on a stamp. All ballots must be in to the Prowers County Clerk and Recorder by 7pm on June 26. Today, June 19, is the last day to apply for a mail-in ballot for the Primary election if the ballot is to be mailed. June 22 is the last day for early voting in the Primary election, and the last day to apply for a mail-in ballot if the ballot is picked up in person.
Most eyes will be focused on the more closely contested Prowers County Commissioners race. There are primary challenges for District 1 and District III. Mike Parker is challenging incumbent Commissioner Henry Schnabel for the GOP seat for District 1 and republicans Roger Stagner and Wendy Buxton-Andrade are on the ballot for the District III seat. On the democratic ticket for that district, Jillane Hixson and Doug Thrall are seeking votes to move ahead for the November election. Thrall is a write-in candidate and Hixson appears by name on the ballot.
Precinct voting won’t be open until June 26 for Wiley, Holly or Granada.
