Voter Registration Drive Alert

Mesa County Clerk and Recorder, Sheila Reiner, would like to alert Mesa County citizens about a voter registration drive that appears to be using an inaccurate and out of date mailing list. Our customers have informed us they have received a voter registration form from a group called 'Conservation Colorado Education Fund.' Some of these forms have been addressed to a pet, a deceased person or individuals who no longer live at that address.

Citizens are encouraged to visit http://MyColoradoVote.com to verify voter registration information or contact the Mesa County Elections Office at (970) 244-1662.
