Maybe it’s a business, school, church, or community center – a convenient location that can be used as a Voter Service and Polling Center (VSPC) for this year’s Presidential Election.  We are asking YOU to let us know where a VSPC would be perfect for voters.

The Clerk’s Office is holding a public comment period February 1 – March 1 to get input from YOU - people who know your neighborhoods and can offer suggestions.

Just send the information to Elections Manager Liz Olson at or (719) 520-6222. 

“Finding suitable VSPC locations is an important part of our 2016 Presidential Election preparations,” said Chuck Broerman, El Paso County Clerk and Recorder.  “With your help, we can ensure that every citizen in our county who chooses to use a VSPC has the opportunity to quickly and efficiently participate in our electoral process.  Finding the right VSPC locations is crucial.”

If you would like to suggest a VSPC location, please include the location name, address and any other helpful information such as the name and phone number of the owner or space coordinator.  As a general rule, the Clerk’s Office prefers donated space.

What is a VSPC?  All elections in Colorado are mail ballot and there will be convenient ballot drop-off boxes, including 13 open 24/7.  But for voters who need to do transactions, there will be 25 VSPCs located throughout the county.  VSPCs allow citizens the opportunity to:

  • register to vote
  • update their voter registration file
  • get a replacement ballot
  • drop off their completed mail ballot
  • vote in person 

All locations also will be ADA accessible and will have user-friendly voting machines for voters with disabilities.  The VSPCs will open in two phases.  The first phase locations will open October 24 and the second phase locations will open November 7.


The Clerk has four branch offices to serve you.  Check which office has the least time to wait by clicking the image below.  It will link to a screen with current wait times. Hit the branch and a drop-down will show the wait time for each service offered.
