But ballots mailed in today might not make it to county elections offices on time to be counted. The Secretary of State's Office is urging voters to consider dropping off their ballots at local drop-off locations in order to avoid missing the deadline.

KVNF Annual meeting in October: Make your voice heard on Proposed Bylaw Change

The Annual Meeting for North Fork Valley Public Radio, Inc. is coming up later in October — Thursday, October 24, 2103, at the Paonia Town Hall, 214 Grand Avenue, at 6 p.m. There will not be board member elections this year as we have two members standing for re-election this year — John Moore, and Kate Zachman, and we had no new nominations for our total of four vacancies. So no election is required at this time. The board will continue to seek qualified candidates to appoint to these vacancies.
