Official Solicitation for Public Comment

In accordance with C.R.S.§ 1-5-102.9 (1) (c) (II), the El Paso County Clerk and Recorder’s Office is soliciting public comment and suggestions regarding the location of Voter Service and Polling Centers for the 2014 General Election. If you own or know of an appropriate potential location (such as a business, school, church, community center, etc.) for a Voter Service and Polling Center based on the criteria outlined below, and if they do to please contact Elections Manager Liz Olson at lizolson@elpasoco.com or at (719) 520-6222. Submissions are due by March 31.

Per Colorado law, the Clerk and Recorder will establish at least 23 Voter Service and Polling Centers, many of which will be used approximately 25 days prior to November 5. Aside from the time commitment, the basic requirements or considerations for a Voter Service and Polling Center are as follows:

  • Secure computer access.
  • Secure internet access.
  • Sufficient electrical power for the equipment.
  • 400 sq. ft. minimum space with a secure room for storage of sensitive material.
  • Compliant with the federal “Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990”, 42 U.S.C. sec. 12101 et seq., as amended.
  • Available public parking (preferably free).
  • Proximity to public transportation lines.
  • A public location that typically serves a significant number of people is preferred.
  • Geographically equitable distribution to maximize convenience for the voters.
  • Climate controlled.
  • If used as an early voting location, the space will be needed for approximately four weeks. If the space is used for an Election Day location, it will be needed for approximately two weeks.
  • The early voting locations will be open to the public on Saturdays during the two weeks leading up to the election and the space will be needed from 6:00 a.m. – 8:30 p.m. on Election Day.
  • Election Day locations will need to be available from 7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. on the Monday before the election and from 6:00 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Election Day. 
  • Signs must be posted twenty days before each election and during the period polling locations are open.
  • The ability for the Clerk and Recorder’s Office to install video surveillance equipment. 
  • Access to restrooms for staff and voters.
  • Tables and chairs preferred – quantity TBD. The Clerk’s Office can provide if necessary.

Voter Service and Polling Centers are a new feature to Colorado voting. Citizens can visit any location – each VSPC has the capacity to process voters from any precinct. A person can register to vote, update their voter registration, obtain a replacement ballot, and drop off their mail ballot. There also will be ADA accessible touch screen voting machines.

The Clerk and Recorder’s Office asks that any suggestions for a location be accompanied by the contact name and information for the establishment’s owner or space coordinator. The Clerk and Recorder’s Office generally does not pay for locations.
