The El Paso County Clerk and Recorder’s Office announced voters will not be charged for parking in the County garage off Sahwatch when visiting the Voter Service and Polling Center (VSPC) in Centennial Hall beginning June 25. At the VSPC the voters may register to vote, update their voter registration, request a replacement ballot, mark their ballot using an ADA accessible ballot marking device, or drop off their ballot for the Primary Election that is June 30.
“We are committed to our voters and want to make sure they have easy access to the voter centers,” said Clerk and Recorder Chuck Broerman. “Ongoing downtown construction causes traffic and parking challenges. By providing free garage parking, voters will be able to visit the Centennial Hall VSPC and receive service.”
The schedule for free parking in the Sahwatch garage is:
Thursday, June 25 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
Friday, June 26 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
Saturday, June 27 8 a.m.-1 p.m.
Monday, June 29 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
Tuesday, June 30 7 a.m.-7 p.m. (Election Day)
Due to COVID-19 voters are encouraged to vote in the safety of their home and return their ballot at a 24/7 secure ballot drop box location if possible. When service at a VSPC is necessary, voters are urged to use caution by wearing a face mask and social distancing. Interactive maps of ballot drop boxes and VSPC locations are available at www.epcvotes.com.
The North Office will be open only as a VSPC on June 29 and Election Day June 30. No appointments for motor vehicle or driver’s license services will be taken. Appointments are available at the Main Office and the Southeast Office by visiting www.epcdrives.com.
