What To Expect When Voting

Your Voting Guide

Vote at ANY Vote Center

Vote at ANY Vote Center

Voters no longer have to vote at a specific location within their precinct. During Early Voting and on Election Day, voters can go to ANY Vote Center to cast their ballot. Use the website or mobile app to find the closest Vote Center.

Ballot by Mail

Ballot by Mail

Ballot by Mail is available to the elderly, the sick or disabled, voters who are incarcerated but still have voting rights and those who will be out of the county on Election Day. An Application for a Ballot by Mail (ABBM) must be filled out and submitted to the Early Voting Clerk before the close of regular business in the Early Voting Clerk’s office, or 12 noon, whichever is later, on the 11th day before Election Day, unless that day is a Saturday, Sunday, or legal state or national holiday, in which case the last day is the first preceding regular business day. An ABBM must be received, not postmarked, by last day of the application period no later than 5:00 p.m.

Once received, the Early Voting Clerk will send the requested ballot within seven days. Completed ballots must be received by the Early Voting Clerk by Election Day. The USPS advises to plan for a return timeframe of 7-10 days. The recommended postage is $0.70. Ballots may also be dropped off in person at the El Paso County Courthouse with valid I.D. only on Election Day.

Removal of Straight Ticket Voting

Removal of Straight Ticket Voting

Voters will no longer be able to vote straight ticket. Voters will have to manually select each candidate they want to vote for. Voters are invited to bring their filled out sample ballot with them to use as a reference while voting, if needed.

Curbside Voting

Curbside Voting

If a voter is physically unable to enter the voting location without assistance or likelihood of injury to his or her health, they may ask that an election worker bring a voting unit during Early Voting or Election Day to their car at the entrance of the voting location. All curbside voters will be allowed the same privacy as a voter at the voting booth. Every voting location during Early Voting or Election Day will designate a space for curbside voting. If you are a voter requesting curbside voting, you may call or text to request assistance. The phone number will be displayed in an A-Frame sign that will be placed at the designated spot. We ask that you park in front of the sign for assistance.
