With only four days left until Election Day, candidates are
busily campaigning for as many votes as they can get.
Some voters, however, have already made their decision and cast
their vote at an early voting site.
An early voting site is available at CSU in room 176 on the main
level of the Lory Student Center near the University Bookstore.
This is the first year there has been an early voting site at
CSU and the site has been extremely successful, with the busiest
times being between classes, Lubinski said.
“We’ve had over 3,000 voters so far and if it continues this
way, by the time the polls close 5,000 voters will probably have
voted here,” Lubinski said.
Early voting began on Oct. 18 and will continue through
“By statute, early voting ends on Friday, but we are a branch of
the Larimer County clerk’s office. The county clerk chose to extend
early voting hours, so this site will be open on Monday to vote
also,” said Nancy Lubinski, CSU early voting supervisor.
Many people chose to vote early because of convenience.
“I wanted to avoid the lines and … I already made up my mind
so I didn’t need the extra five days to think about it,” said
Ashley Hill, a postdoctoral fellow who voted on Thursday.
Brad Harper, a freshman political science major, cast his ballot
early for another reason.
“Voting early allows me to get involved with a political
organization on Election Day. I am working for the 96-hour team for
the Bush campaign. It is a last-minute way to get the word out
there,” Harper said.
Larimer County has made it more convenient for voters registered
in the county to vote early.
“We have all ballot styles here. So, for example, if a voter
from Estes Park comes in we will have a ballot with issues specific
to Estes Park. As long as you live in Larimer County, we have your
ballot style,” Lubinski said.
In addition to the CSU location there are early voting sites at
the Larimer County Courthouse offices, 200 W. Oak St. room 152 and
at Harmony Market, 1001 E. Harmony Road.
“Having people vote early spreads out the congestion. It doesn’t
take as much time out of the day as when you vote on Election Day,”
