Press Release (El Paso County Clerk)

Fourteen more Voter Service and Polling Centers (VSPC) are being opened today by the Clerk and Recorder’s Office.  Voters may go to any of the locations to:

·         Register to vote

·         Update their voter registration

·         Request a replacement ballot

·         Vote on an ADA accessible voting machine

·         Drop off their voted ballot

“Our goal is to give voters convenient access to VSPCs to ensure they have every opportunity to vote,” said Clerk and Recorder Chuck Broerman. “The VSPC locations are determined utilizing our geographic information system (GIS) and strategically placed throughout the county.” Over 98 percent of the population live within 10 or 15 minutes from a VSPC or secure 24/7 ballot drop-off box. As a reminder, voters can return their ballot via USPS with 0.71 cents postage.

Locations of VSPCs and 24/7 secure ballot drop-off boxes with an interactive map and hours of operation are available on under the tab “Return My Ballot.”  The 14 opening today include locations in Citadel and Chapel Hills Mall, Falcon, Monument, Fountain, Fort Carson, among others. Additional VSPCs will open on November 5 bringing the total to 28 operating by Election Day.  Voters who have difficulty visiting a VSPC during the week may take advantage of two Saturdays, October 27 and November 3, when VSPCs will be open 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. All VSPCs will be open Monday and Tuesday, November 5 and 6, from 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.

The Clerk’s Office expects there to be a substantial increase in voter turnout from past General Elections.  By returning their voted ballot early, voters help facilitate the election process so results can be released more quickly after voting ends on election night.  All ballots must be received by 7:00 p.m. on Election Day, November 6, in order to be counted.  Postmarked ballots received after the deadline cannot be counted.

Voters with questions or those who have not yet received their ballot in the mail should contact the Clerk’s Election Department at 719-575-VOTE (8683) or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
