Voter turnout high in Breck for marijuana question

Summit Daily/Mark Fox

Breckenridge has been the Election Day hot spot in Summit County as voters decide whether to decriminalize marijuana.

“Here in Breckenridge, it’s going really good. They’ve had a line kind of all day long,” said Diane Thaemert, deputy clerk with Summit County Elections. “The other centers are medium (to) pretty low.”

She said early this afternoon that Dillon’s turn-out “wasn’t too much; Silverthorne was medium.”

The line in Breckenridge has been at least three or four people deep for most of the day. Other items on the ballot today include election of three Summit School Board members as well as tax issues in Silverthorne and Montezuma.
