June 3, 2024 The Office of the Clerk and Recorder has mailed 450,620 ballots for the June 25 Election to all eligible, active registered Democratic, Republican and Unaffiliated voters.

Because this is a Primary Election, unaffiliated voters will receive a ballot packet containing two ballots: a Republican candidate ballot and a Democratic candidate ballot. It is essential the unaffiliated voter only votes and returns one ballot. They should destroy and discard the other ballot. If the unaffiliated voter returns both ballots voted, neither will be counted. The voter needs to vote only one ballot.

The mail ballot packet contains an “I Voted” sticker on the instruction sheet. Five different, colorful designs allow mail-in voters to show they have voted by wearing their sticker. If you do not receive your ballot by June 12, contact our Elections Department at 719-575-VOTE (8683). To track the status of your mail ballot, sign up for BallotTrax.

The Clerk provides 39 secure 24-hour ballot drop box locations throughout the county. 99% of the county’s population lives within a fifteen-minute drive of one of these locations. Every ballot box is under 24/7 camera surveillance and gives the public access to view each box. By visiting you can view motion triggered events at any of the ballot boxes.

Voters also may return their ballot through the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) by affixing adequate postage to their return envelope. The Clerk’s Office recommends that voters do not return their voted ballot by mail after June 17. All voted ballots must be returned to the Clerk and Recorder’s Office by 7:00 p.m. on Election Day, June 25, to be counted. Postmarked ballots received after the deadline cannot be counted.

Any voter needing a replacement ballot, or other in-person services may visit the VSPC at the Citizens Service Center at 1675 West Garden of the Gods Road. Additional Voter Service and Polling Centers (VSPCs) will open in phases June 10. A full list of locations along with hours of operation can be viewed here.
