As of Nov. 2, 74,549 people had voted in El Paso County, less than 19 percent of the 399,492 ballots issued.

So if Election Day is sneaking up on you and you haven't voted, the El Paso County Clerk and Recorder's Office wants to make it as simple as possible.

In that regard, the office is piloting new drop-off spots. Starting today, Nov. 2, election judges will be at these locations and times to pick up ballots:

From a news release:
The project is part of an effort to continue making voting as accessible as possible in El Paso County – and that includes returning mail ballots. Citizens can drop ballots off in one of the 15 secure 24/7 drop-off locations throughout the County. But, the Clerk’s Office understands that those options may not be the most convenient.

“We wanted to provide this service to citizens who may not live as close to one of the 24/7 secure drop-off locations that we have throughout the County. Many of the locations are community spots for local neighborhoods, and we hope this will provide them with an additional chance to save a trip to drop off their ballot,” said Clerk and Recorder Broerman.

Ballots may also be dropped off at one of the voter service and polling centers open now through Election Day – locations are available on The Clerk and Recorder’s Office must receive the ballot by 7:00 p.m. on November 7 for it to be counted.
