The El Paso County Clerk and Recorder's Office has expanded its Voter Service and Polling Center locations and hours of operation to serve the voters in the Senate District 11 Recall Election.
"It became clear immediately after the court's ruling that invalidated an all-mail ballot election we would need to expand voting centers to accommodate the voters of Senate District 11," stated Clerk and Recorder Wayne Williams. "It is important for people to remember that even if you have signed up for a mail ballot in the past, you will not be getting one automatically this time. Given that fact, I am pleased that the community has worked with my office to expand the Voter Service and Polling Center sites with this election moving away from an ‘all mail ballot' election to a polling place election. The generosity of the City of Manitou Springs, El Paso County Regional Building Department, and Harrison School District in providing these additional sites means that all voters in Senate District 11 are within a seven minute drive of a Voter Service and Polling Center. "
Below are the names, locations, and times of operation for the expanded list of the seven Voter Service and Polling Centers:
"With this announcement, I would like to encourage everyone to remember that four of our sites are open on the Saturday preceding the election," said Williams. "This availability is an added convenience for those voters who can't vote during traditional hours and should help to avoid the lines on Election Day. We would love for Saturday to be one of our busier days."
