November 3, 2022 – The El Paso County Clerk and Recorder’s Office will open 17 more Voter Service and Polling Centers (VSPC), on Friday, November 4, adding to the six VSPCs already operating. This weekend 23 VSPC locations will be open Saturday, November 5, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. The Clerk’s Office encourages voters who need in-person services to utilize Saturday hours in advance of Election Day. If voters wait to vote in person on Election Day, please be aware there will be long lines and wait times at the voter centers.
Voters should be aware that the primary purposes of a Voter Center are to:
- register new voters
- update voter registrations
- issue a replacement ballot
- issue a ballot to a voter who did not receive one in the mail
- offer ADA accessible ballot marking devices for individuals with disabilities
If an individual prefers to vote in person, they may come to a Voter Center and receive a paper ballot to vote and deposit, or they can drop their completed mail ballot off in person. Individuals interested in voting in person are strongly encouraged to do so early and not at the last minute on Election Day to prevent Election Results reporting from being delayed. All ballots, whether mail ballot or in person have the same security measures and are processed in the same manner.
The final 14 VSPC locations will open on Monday, November 7, bringing the total to 37 that will be available through Election Day, November 8. All VSPCs will be open Monday, November 7 and Election Day, Tuesday, November 8, from 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
With less than a week away from the 2022 General Election Day, November 8, it is too late for voters to return their ballot via the United States Postal Service. Voters must return their ballot at one of the 39 ballot drop-off locations, monitored by video surveillance.
The Clerk’s branch offices will be closed for motor vehicle, driver’s license and recording/marriage license services on Monday, November 7 and Election Day, November 8. All the branch offices will be open as Voter Service and Polling Centers and will provide only voting services on those two days. The Main Clerk’s Office located at the El Paso County Citizens Service Center will offer motor vehicle, driver’s license and recording/marriage license services on Monday, November 7 during normal business hours and on Tuesday, Election Day, from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Kiosks for self-service vehicle registration renewal also are available with locations at www.epcdrives.com.
