Clerk’s Election Department Recognized for
Improving Voter Accessibility

The Clerk and Recorder’s Elections Department is honored to receive the U.S. Election Assistance Commission’s “Clearie” Award for best practices in improving voting accessibility for persons with disabilities. The national award recognizes the Department’s work in leveraging community relationships to expand resources for voters with disabilities.

Our Elections Department partnered with The Independence Center (TIC) in 2016 and 2017 to identify specific challenges to voting accessibility for voters with disabilities.  Among improvements to accessibility were TIC training election judges in disability etiquette, open houses held to demonstrate how to use election equipment, ASL interpreters available to assist voters.  This year, our office produced its first ASL-interpreted sample ballot for the 2017 Coordinated Election. Only a handful of similar videos have been produced throughout the country. The Independence Center also operated as a Voter Service and Polling Center for two days.   

This is the fifth award in as many years achieved by our Election team, professionals dedicated to conducting fair, transparent, accurate elections with excellent efficiency. The Clerk and Recorder’s Office is proud of the accomplishments of the Elections Department.  And, most importantly, the valuable service we provide to voters with disabilities and all voters in El Paso County.



Counties Collaborate to Offer
Kiosk Service “Away from Home”


Vehicle Registration Renewal Kiosk Available Cross-County

Beginning Monday, March 5, when you’re outside of El Paso County you can renew your vehicle registration at a kiosk in any of the 12 counties offering the Colorado MVExpress kiosks!

This cross-county service is only available to residents of those 12 counties. The kiosk takes just a few minutes and you receive your year tab, registration and payment receipt immediately. Your fees will be calculated based on El Paso County.

These are the Colorado Counties offering kiosk service. Thanks to a tool developed by the Arapahoe County Clerk and Recorder’s Office, residents can find the nearest kiosk to their current location.

Four of our Motor Vehicle offices give residents the option to renew at the kiosk and skip the counter line. Three locations have interior kiosks: Citizens Service Center Main Office, Powers/Southeast and downtown at Centennial Hall. All are open Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

We offer the first and only 24-hour secure kiosk in the state at our North Motor Vehicle Branch, 8830 N. Union Blvd., giving you access any time, any day to renew your plates.

Visit the Renewal Kiosk page for information about the kiosks.
