GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KREX) — Thousands of people in Mesa County have already voted via mail, but today in person voting opened and many people went to vote in the primary elections.

Among the in-person voters today many said rep. Lauren Boebert and Tina Peters were their reasons for voting today—despite both only being on the Republican primary ballot.

Tina Peters faces multiple charges at the state and federal level. Lauren Boebert is under state investigation for fraud.

All ballots for the primary election must be turned in to the Mesa County Elections Division by 7pm June 28th.
