A week after ballots were mailed to registered voters statewide, completed forms are slowly trickling in to county clerk and recorder's offices, the Colorado Secretary of State's Office reported Monday.

In El Paso County, 4,958 ballots have been returned to date, while zero were reported to have been submitted in Teller County.

Statewide, 36,387 ballots have been received and validated, the Secretary of State's Office said.
