Community Outreach

Serving the people in our community is a priority for the Clerk and Recorder’s Office. We look for avenues to “get out the word” with information that will help you understand the services that are available in our office and why they function a certain way.

Our community outreach goes into schools, organizations and businesses. We encourage interaction with the public and send staff out to help educate people so they realize the Clerk’s Office is working with them and for them.

In addition, we offer assistance to other government entities and lend support through our experience and professional staff. Collaborative efforts among counties and municipalities all are focused on providing the most efficient public service.

Recent activity in the community is shown below.  If you would like our office to participate in a program or offer information, please contact Kristi Alfonso, Public Information Officer, (719) 520-6226, or kristialfonso@elpasoco.com

ELECTIONS STAFF PRESENTS TO DOHERTY HIGH SCHOOLElections Team at Doherty High School

What better time to learn about elections than during the exciting 2016 Presidential Election cycle? Doherty High School hosted Mattie Albert and Brian McLellan to talk with students about the election process.  The majority of the 100 students attending were Juniors and showed their enthusiasm for learning and participating!  Several signed up to serve as Election Judges and worked alongside our staff for the election. Thanks to them for their interest and involvement!

Many students had already registered to vote when they got their Driver’s Permit and others took registration forms with them.  As a note, citizens can register to vote before their 18th birthday, and then are eligible to vote when they turn 18.

Mattie and Brian discussed why it is important to vote – your vote is your voice! They explained Colorado’s all mail ballot voting structure and that 2016 is the first Presidential Election to be conducted as all mail ballot. Students learned how to register to vote, how elections are conducted in Colorado and where to find information on important ballot issues.
