Eagle County To Offer Ballots In Spanish

TheDenverChannel.com, Sept. 20

EAGLE, Colo.—Eagle County, which relies heavily on Spanish-speaking workers at its resorts, will offer Spanish ballots this fall for the first time.

County Clerk Teak Simonton said 25 percent of the county’s population is of Hispanic descent.

“It’s only fair and reasonable that I address the needs of all Eagle County citizens, not just the English speaking, especially when the Spanish speaking community is increasing within the county,” Simonton said.

Alamosa, Conejos, Costilla, Crowley, Denver, Otero, Rio Grande, and Saguache counties already print ballots in Spanish. La Plata and Montezuma counties provide ballots in Navajo and Ute.
