No change from provisional ballot count in El Paso County

A total of 5,455 eligible provisional and late military overseas mail-in ballots tallied this week did not overturn any unofficial results from the Nov. 2 election, County Clerk and Recorder Bob Balink said Tuesday night.

In fact, the additional ballots widened the defeat of a referendum to ban medical marijuana businesses in unincorporated areas of the county, and added a further margin of victory for Colorado state Senate incumbent John Morse, a Democrat.

The votes remained close on two Peyton School District 23-JT questions, but with the Elbert County vote added in, neither of two bond measures were approved.

None of the outcomes fall within a one-half-of 1 percent margin of votes cast that, by law, would have triggered an automatic recount, Balink said.    More -
