Nearly a quarter of Colorado Springs’ registered voters have returned their ballots for the city’s April 2 election to select a mayor and three at-large City Council members and decide whether firefighters get collective bargaining privileges.

By Friday, 61,070 ballots had been returned, and nearly 4,000 more arrived by midday Monday, City Clerk Sarah Johnson said.

The city mailed out 267,714 ballots in early March.
