Motor Vehicle Information:

Do you have your plate renewal card that you received in the mail but you just can’t make it into the Motor Vehicle Office Monday – Friday 8-5? 

Drop your renewal notice and the check made out for the exact amount in our 24/7 Drive up Drop Box located in the Courthouse parking lot east side exit (next to the flower box).  

Keep in mind if you are past your month grace period there will be a late fee assessed.  Call the office 970-522-1158 to get the correct amount.

ELECTION INFORMATION:

Have you ever wondered why when results come out election night there are these things called Overvotes and Undervotes?   

Undervote: occurs when the number of choices selected by a voter in an election contest is less than the maximum number allowed for that contest.  An undervote also occurs when no votes for a single choice contest.  For example, a voter that is permitted to cast one vote for a candidate and does not select a candidate has undervoted.

ELECTION HISTORY INFORMATION:

How is the President really elected and what is the Electoral College?

When our founding fathers were writing the Constitution, they decided they wanted every state to have a role in national elections and did not want to leave it up to Congress or just part of the population consisting of the more populous states. 

So the Founding Fathers came up with a system of “electors” or pre-selected people from each state that ultimately elects the President and Vice President.
