The El Paso County clerk and recorder wants voters to help choose locations for service and polling centers for the November 2018 election.
While voters in Colorado elections receive and cast their ballots via mail, the centers allow citizens to register to vote, update their voter registration records, get a replacement ballot or drop off a completed ballot. The centers also offer polling stations that allow people with disabilities and others to vote in person.
Clerk and Recorder Chuck Broerman hopes to open up to 26 locations for the November elections, his office said in a news release.
The centers are typically located in public facilities that serve a large number of people. Last year's locations included a school, a church, a retirement community, a YMCA, the Security Fire Department, and the Norris-Penrose Event Center.
State law requires that the centers have restrooms and parking, among other criteria, according to the news release.
Anyone who owns a property that could be suitable or knows of another potential location can contact the county's elections director, Angie Leath, by calling 520-7325 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
