UPDATE: Time running out to mail your ballot

Posted By on Wed, Jun 18, 2014 at 12:13 PM

Citizens who want to mail their primary ballots are running out of time.

Ballots must be mailed tomorrow to ensure they are received by election day and counted. You'll need at least $.70 postage if you choose to mail. The other option is to drop-off your ballot at one of the locations listed below.

By now you should have received your primary ballot in the mail if you're registered with a major political party.

But once you vote, where should you bring your finished ballot? If you don't plan to mail it in, you'll need to bring it to one of several drop-off locations. The good news is, more just opened, so you have plenty to choose from.

Read on for all the details from the El Paso County Clerk and Recorder's Office:


More Voter Service and Polling Centers Open
Voters Urged Not to Delay Returning Ballot



[Colorado Springs, Colo. – June 16, 2014] The El Paso County Clerk and Recorder’s Office has opened the three remaining Motor Vehicle Offices as Voter Service and Polling Centers to assist voters ahead of the June 24 Primary Election. All four county Motor Vehicle Offices now offer full voting services without any disruption to regular motor vehicle operations.

Voter Service and Polling Centers (VSPCs) are a new concept to Colorado voting. At a VSPC, voters may return their ballot, get a replacement ballot, vote in person, and register or update their registration. Unaffiliated voters also may affiliate to one of Colorado’s three major political parties (American Constitution, Democratic, or Republican) and vote in that party’s primary.

Though every voter affiliated with a major political party was mailed a ballot, the Voter Service and Polling Centers are offered as an additional service. If any El Paso County resident affiliated with any of Colorado’s three major political parties has not yet received their ballot, they should call (719) 575-VOTE (8683) immediately.

All ballots must be returned to the Clerk and Recorder’s Office by 7:00 PM on Tuesday, June 24 to be counted. Voters are urged not to delay returning their ballot to the Clerk and Recorder’s Office. Voters have a wide assortment of convenient options available for returning their ballot, including by mail, 11 different 24/7 ballot drop boxes, or Voter Service and Polling Centers). If a voter chooses they may return their ballot by mail ($0.70 is likely adequate postage), but it is not suggested that a voter attempt to return a ballot by mail after Thursday, June 19.
