Congratulations to the Elections Department on receiving an El Paso County 2015 Innovation Award, presented by the Board of County Commissioners on March 3.  Clerk and Recorder Chuck Broerman echoed the sentiments of his office, “I couldn’t be more proud of the innovations our Elections Department implemented in 2015, which saved taxpayers $189,000 and improved the voter experience.  Their cutting edge work was certainly worthy of such recognition.” 

Our staff members in Elections already had an indisputable reputation for professionalism and conducting elections with the skill and knowledge so crucial to our democratic system.  But last year, they decided to go beyond the status quo. 

As a team, they reviewed their processes and enhanced areas to give voters an even better experience.  The result was innovative changes to our already efficient procedures that saved time and money and eased voting for citizens.  The impact of these improvements will reverberate for years to come.

Clerk Broerman thanked the Board of County Commissioners, El Paso County Administration, and the selection committee for this great honor. The Innovation Award distinction is a testament to our staff’s professionalism, knowledge and dedication in conducting fair, transparent, accurate elections.

The innovative ideas implemented in 2015 and that will affect every election to come include:

  1. Ballot Layout and Secrecy Sleeve – resulting in 543 less work hours and $5,500 in labor savings
  2. Ballot Instruction Redesign – saving hundreds of work hours and reducing the need for staffing
  3. Ballot Processing Staffing and Flow Redesign – resulting in substantial efficiencies and reduced labor costs
  4. Better Ballot Delivery System Between VSPCs and Counting Center – helping to reduce the election completion time by five hours, helping to save costs, being less burdensome on staff, and better serving the voting public 

This is the second award the Elections Department has received in recent years.  The department was recognized with the 2012 National Association of Secretaries of State Medallion Award in recognition of their work during the Waldo Canyon Fire.  The fire jumped Queens Canyon on the day of the 2012 Primary Election, and burned homes close to the Citizens Service Center where the Elections Department was counting ballots.
