New Commissioner Districts Approved

The Board of County Commissioners approved changes to the Commissioner District boundaries at the June 29 Board meeting.  Following a 30-day public comment period during which citizens submitted their opinions on three proposed maps, the Commissioners approved Option #3 by a unanimous vote.

The Clerk’s Office received a record 266 comments on the district proposals, and followed up with those who submitted comments. Comments were submitted via email, forms, voicemails/phone calls, and in person.  You may read the public comments by clicking here.

There was a committed effort by the Clerk’s Office to inform the public about the redistricting process.  Two open houses at the Clerk’s Office gave people an opportunity to view the map options on a larger scale, and personally address questions or concerns to Clerk Chuck Broerman and Strategy and Development Manager Mattie Albert.  Through press releases, social media postings and the Clerk’s website the public was kept apprised.

Please click here for Option #3 to view the approved map showing the entire County with all districts included.  The individual maps for each of our five Commissioner Districts are available on the District Maps page.



Automated Motor Vehicle Kiosk
Coming This Summer

Motor Vehicle Kiosk

Soon renewing your motor vehicle registration will be just as easy as stopping by an ATM!  The automated motor vehicle kiosk will give customers the option of renewing their registration – and most importantly – receiving their tags and reg card right from the machine!  No wait. No worry.

Clerk and Recorder Chuck Broerman tested the kiosk during the Colorado County Clerks Association Conference in January.  A representative of Intellectual Technologies, Inc., the kiosk vendor, demonstrated the ease and efficiency of renewing at the kiosk – takes just about 2 minutes.

To view the demonstration, click on Kiosk Video.

The Clerk and Recorder’s Office plans to install a kiosk at its Main Office in August.  El Paso County sends approximately 40,000 motor vehicle registration renewal cards per month. Of that, half choose to renew online or via mail. For customers who visit the Main Office, the kiosk will give them an opportunity to bypass lines.

Our office is excited to offer this new service.  It is another example of our commitment to explore new, innovative programs.  The end-result goal is better efficiencies, operations, convenient and timely service to our customers. More information will be available as the implementation date draws near.



Motor Vehicle Wait Times

The Clerk has five 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.
