Turnout so far... and where to vote

Colorado Confidential's Mark Mehringer reports that 30,000 voters have submitted ballots in May 2007's all-mail election, representing roughly 16% of the electorate.

That percentage seems fairly healthy given the recent delivery of ballots and the weeks remaining until D-Day, but is perhaps less impressive considering the nearly 100,000 people who are no longer counted as "active" voters.

Folks who haven't yet submitted a ballot by now to get out and vote. To that end, Mehringer also offers the following public service message:
Voters have until 7pm on May 1 to get their ballots in to the Election Commission by either mailing them in at a cost of 63 cents in postage, or dropping them off at one of 14 locations across the city.
