Jefferson: Ballot returns slower, too

About 21 percent of 12,616 absentee ballots mailed in the Sept. 14 primary election have been returned to the Jefferson County Auditor’s Office.

That’s about 5 percent off the pace of the last primary election at this time, County Auditor Donna Eldridge said Thursday.

A total of 2,613 absentee ballots had been returned as of Thursday, she said.

Jefferson County voters have the option of going to the polls on the traditional election day or using the absentee system.

Eldridge reminded voters to sign the space on the outside envelope before returning them, noting nine ballots that came back Wednesday weren’t signed.
