All about U — and RoUtt CoUnty

The wooden U from the Routt County clerk’s office.

Decorating a wooden U seems a whole lot more fun than scratching spots, which is what Barb Bond with the Routt County Clerk and Recorder’s office did when she stayed home with the chicken pox.

Bond is the Motor Vehicle supervisor, and Clerk Kim Bonner was only too happy to hand over the U to Bond.

“She paints wineglasses and such,” Bonner said. “She’s very artistic.”

Secretary Wayne Williams is handing out the U’s as part of the UChooseCO campaign to educate unaffiliated voters that they can participate in the June 26 primary election, but they can only vote one ballot. The campaign has a web pageFacebook page, a Twitter account and its own hashtag, #UChooseCO.

At least every week day between now and the June 26 primary the Secretary of State’s office will highlight a wooden U or two. Check out more decorated U’s on Facebook and Twitter.
