Clerk Opens Three Additional Voter Service and Polling Centers

Colorado Springs, Colo. – November 2, 2015
Voters who need to get a replacement ballot, update their registration, register to vote, or vote in person will have three more locations from which to choose starting today, November 2. The three additional Voter Service and Polling Centers (VSPCs) open today in Monument, Manitou Springs, and Fountain, giving voters outside of Colorado Springs a more convenient option.

“We felt it was important to give voters throughout the county greater accessibility to the VSPCs,” said Clerk and Recorder Chuck Broerman. “We also want to thank the people who offered these facilities for use in the election. They help us to ensure voters’ democratic right to vote is not encumbered.”

All VSPCs also have ballot drop-off boxes with 24/7 access. An interactive map where voters may search for the nearest VSPC or ballot drop-off location is available at under the tab Return My Ballot. The locations of drop boxes were strategically determined so they are located within a 15-minute drive time of 98% of all El Paso County voters.

The three additional VSPCs and operating hours are:

Monday, November 2, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Election Day, Tuesday, November 3, 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m

The Clerk’s Office strongly encourages voters to return their ballot early at any of the ballot drop-off boxes. Voters are urged NOT to return their ballot by the U.S. Postal Service due to delays in delivery. All ballots must be received by 7:00 p.m. on Election Day, November 3, in order to be counted. Postmarked ballots received after the deadline cannot be counted.

Voters can check the status of their ballot to know when the Clerk’s Office has received it by signing up for BallotTrax. This is a free service offered by the Clerk’s Office to El Paso County voters this year. It also gives voters an option to receive notifications by email, text or phone call. Voters can enroll in BallotTrax by going to

Voter Service and Polling Centers currently open:

Monday, November 2, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Election Day, Tuesday November 3, 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
