The project is part of an effort to making voting as accessible as possible in El Paso County and that includes returning mail ballots. There are also 15 secure 24/7 accessible drop-off locations in El Paso County.

"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 can also be dropped off at one of the voter service centers open now through Election Day, click here to find locations.

This year, the Clerk and Recorder's Office also created its first sample ballot interpreted in American Sign Language.

This is one of only a handful of videos produced across the country. The idea came from the Clerk and Recorder's partnership with The Independence Center, a local nonprofit dedicated to supporting greater independence for those with disabilities.

"Our hope is that the video will make voting and the issues on the ballot more accessible for individuals in our community that are more familiar with ASL. We look forward to exploring more opportunities in the future to provide similar resources so that our office continues to provide as accessible of a voting experience as possible to our citizens," said Chuck Broerman.

The Independence Center will be a polling place for this election, it will be open Monday, Nov. 6 from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Election Day from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and voters will be able to cast a ballot in person, register to vote, or drop off a ballot in person.
