Dear Boulder County Voters,
While the November 2020 General Election is more than a year away, the Boulder County Clerk & Recorder’s office is preparing now for a successful election and we hope you will assist us in our planning process!
Under Colorado law, a mail ballot will be automatically sent to all active Colorado voters. Boulder County must also open Voter Service and Polling Centers (Voter Service Centers or VSPCs, for short) to provide in-person services for voters.
At a Voter Service Center, a voter may:
- Register to vote or update their current registration;
- Request a new or replacement mail ballot;
- Vote in-person on a paper ballot or on a ballot marking device that is accessible for a person with a disability;
- Drop-off their voted mail ballot; or
- Vote a statewide ballot (if registered to vote in a different county).
We are working now to identify up to three new Voter Service Centers for 2020 and are reviewing our most recently used facilities. When selecting a location to serve as a Voter Service Center, the following factors shall be considered:
- Proximity to public transportation lines and availability of parking;
- Geographic features, such as mountain passes, that tend to affect access and convenience;
- Equitable distribution across the county to afford maximally convenient options for electors;
- The existence and location of population centers;
- Access for persons with disabilities;
- Use of public buildings that are known to electors in the county;
- Proximity to historically under-represented communities; and
- Facilities that can ensure the security of the voting equipment.
With this information in mind, please complete the following short survey to provide your feedback on Voter Service Center locations, as well as feedback on several other voting-related questions.
Thank you in advance for your feedback. We appreciate your partnership in helping shape an accessible voting model for the citizens of Boulder County! Please take survey by Tuesday, October 15, 2019:
