Due to the recent hail storm, 26 students from Adams City High School were unable to attend a public hearing to be recognized for their public service to Commerce City families.

Today I delivered Proclamations signed by the Adams County Commissioners to those 26 students at Adams City High School. This past tax season, they volunteered their time to serve 423 families resulting in $1 million in federal and state refunds.

If you’re planning to mail in your ballot this year, there’s a one-in-three chance it will need an extra stamp.

Twenty-four counties, including Boulder and Denver, have two-page ballots this year. That will require postage of 68 cents to mail in the ballot, versus 47 cents for one-page ballots that fall under the one ounce maximum.

Three counties — Denver, and Costilla and Rio Grande in the San Luis Valley — have multi-page ballots because they’re covered under a section of the Voting Rights Act that requires ballots to be written in both English and Spanish.
