Press Release

Citizens in El Paso County now have a new option to renew their vehicle registration without leaving their home or office -- Gov2Go, the nation’s first personal assistant for government.  Individuals who download the Gov2Go app will receive renewal reminders and can renew their vehicle tags from the convenience of their cell phones. After users download Gov2Go and create profiles, they’ll receive reminders when their vehicle tags are due and will have the ability to complete the transaction online. Users can show their stored electronic receipts, if needed, until their vehicle tags arrive in the mail.



“We strive to take an innovative approach when it comes to customer service, the nature of how citizens interact with government has changed,” said Chuck Broerman, El Paso County Clerk and Recorder. “Many of us live in Colorado because we love all this state has to offer. Gov2Go permits us to utilize technology, allowing our residents to fill their day with work, family, school and recreation.”

A unique feature of Gov2Go is that it isn’t just a single-purpose application. “Gov2Go is a platform that makes it easier for citizens to interact with government on all levels,” said Colorado Interactive President and General Manager, Fred Sargeson. “Although users will initially see its convenience for handling vehicle registration renewals, Gov2Go will help them stay on top of election and voter information, government holidays, receive AMBER Alerts and purchase digital passes for select federal parks.”  Available in all 50 states, the Gov2Go platform is designed to expand and adapt with future technologies. 

The smart phone app can be downloaded from the App Store or on Google Play.

Three-day training to stop active Killers, Medically Save Lives



Press Release



FASTER* Colorado —an organization committed to making our school children as safe as possible— announces the 2018 FASTER Colorado training schedule for armed school staff members. The first class is June 11-13 and will be held in Adams County, CO. The training is organized by Coloradans for Civil Liberties (CCL), in partnership with Independence Institute.
 
FASTER Colorado launched its first training class in 2017.

FASTER Colorado curriculum includes skills to stop active shooter situations, as well as tactical medical training to deal with related injuries such as gunshot wounds.
 
“Colorado law already allows K-12 school staff to carry a concealed firearm on campus, provided they are designated by their school board, or charter school board, as a school security officer,” said Laura Carno, co-founder of Coloradans for Civil Liberties and Founder of FASTER Colorado. “Many dozens of school staff in Colorado are already so designated. We want them to have access to world-class training in stopping active killers and saving lives.”
 
The tuition is $1,000 per class member, and scholarships are available. According to Amy Cooke, Independence Institute’s Executive VP, “We have raised scholarship money, because we never want lack of training budget to keep any school personnel from having access to this lifesaving training. We are honored to partner with CCL to help save the lives of Colorado’s school children.”
 


Members of the media may attend portions of the class, and conduct interviews with: FASTER Colorado Founder, Laura Carno, FASTER Colorado’s trainers (all active-duty law enforcement), and Evan Todd (Columbine survivor). At class time, there may be class attendees who are open to interviews. We ask that media not report the names, schools, or images of class attendees without that individual’s express consent.

Press Release (El Paso County)

The El Paso County Clerk and Recorder’s Office has mailed approximately 375,000 ballots to active registered Democratic, Republican and Unaffiliated voters for the 2018 Primary Election.  The ballots should arrive in voters’ mailboxes Friday of this week.

Ballots sent will contain contests for U.S. House, Governor, Secretary of State, Treasurer, Attorney General, CU Regent, Board of Education, State Senate, State House, County-wide offices and Commissioner District one and five.  

“This is an exciting election season,” said Clerk and Recorder Chuck Broerman.  “This Primary Election is the last step that will help determine the candidates on this November’s General Election Ballot. For the first time, Unaffiliated voters can cast a vote and make their voice heard. Unaffiliated voters who did not choose a ballot preference will receive a ballot packet containing two ballots, Republican and Democratic. It is essential the Unaffiliated voter only votes and returns one ballot.”

Voters have many convenient options for returning their voted ballot.  The Clerk and Recorder’s Office has fifteen 24/7 ballot drop-boxes located throughout the county.  98.6% of the county’s population lives within a fifteen minute drive of one of these locations.  Voters also may return their ballot through the U.S. Postal Service.  However, voters should affix adequate postage and mail their ballot in enough time for delivery to the Clerk’s Office before the deadline of 7:00 p.m. on Election Day, June 26. The Clerk’s Office recommends that voters do not return their voted ballot by mail after June 20.

Any voter needing a replacement ballot or other in-person services may visit the Clerk and Recorder’s Office at the Citizens Service Center at 1675 West Garden of the Gods Road.  Other Voter Service and Polling Centers will open at a later date.

For more information about the election, including sample Primary Election ballots, voters should visit www.EPCVotes.com or call (719) 575-VOTE (8683).

All voted ballots must be returned to the Clerk and Recorder’s Office by 7:00 p.m. on Election Day, June 26, to be counted.  Postmarked ballots received after the deadline cannot be counted.
