BALLOTS TO BE MAILED MID OCTOBER
Voters Urged to Check and Update Information Now
In mid October, the El Paso County Clerk and Recorder’s Office will mail ballots to all registered voters for the General Election on November 4, 2014.
“Every voter with an up-to-date voter registration file will get a ballot around mid October,” said Public Information Officer Ryan Parsell. “However, to be sure your ballot is not delayed you want to make any updates to your voter registration file by the end of September. We strongly encourage all voters to check their voter registration file by visiting www.GoVoteColorado.com to check that their information is current and make any necessary changes. We also encourage voters to add their e-mail address to their file, which will enable the Elections Department to communicate important election information.”
Incorrect information on a voter’s registration record will result in their ballot being returned as undeliverable to the Clerk’s Office. By law, the U.S. Postal Service cannot forward a ballot. In order to ensure their information is correct before ballots are mailed, voters should check their registration now.
The Election Department at the County Clerk’s Office is available to assist voters with questions, registering to vote or updating their registrations. They may be reached at 575-VOTE (8683) or email@example.com.
On October 14, the Main Clerk and Recorder’s Office at the Citizens Service Center will open as a Voter Service and Polling Center. Beginning October 20, an additional 11 Voter Service and Polling Centers (VSPC) will open throughout the county where voters may register to vote, update their voter registration, request a replacement ballot, vote on an ADA accessible voting machine, or drop off their ballot. Another 13 VSPCs will be opened November 3 and 4 to further serve voters.
The complete listing of VSPCs and ballot drop-off locations is on the Election Department website, http://car.elpasoco.com/Election.
A sample ballot is now available on the Clerk’s website showing the races and issues on which electors will vote.
