GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - The Mesa County clerk says new ballots have been sent to Palisade voters who originally got ballots without two marijuana-related questions.

The town is voting on whether to allow recreational marijuana sales and whether to tax them.

Clerk Sheila Reiner tells The Daily Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1zoy0dy) that if people end up voting with the earlier, incomplete ballots, they will be issued a special ballot with just those two questions. Meanwhile, she says people living outside of town who got ballots with the pot questions on them will either get a new ballot or their votes on the pot issues won’t be counted.

The owners of the area’s only medical marijuana dispensary, who want to offer recreational sales, are asking the secretary of state to oversee the election.
