ADA Voters (Americans with Disabilities Act)

The El Paso County Clerk and Recorder’s Office is proud of our partnership with The Independence Center to facilitate voting for people with disabilities. The Independence Center is a nonprofit organization serving individuals with disabilities and their families to support independent living.

The Independence Center operates as a highly accessible Voter Service and Polling Center (VSPC) with unique features for voters with disabilities for designated elections. All of the VSPCs serving El Paso County are equipped with ballot marking devices that are ADA accessible where voters can vote in person. Click here to learn how easy the machine is to use.

To vote in person, you must bring an acceptable form of ID to a designated Voter Service and Polling Center. The deadline to vote in person is 7:00 PM on Election Day.

A voter with a disability may access their ballot electronically by contacting our Election Office at They must make this request for each election. Our office will send them instructions on how to access their ballot electronically.

An eligible voter must return the voted ballot and the accessible ballot application which they have signed. The voted ballot and signed ballot application must be returned by one of these methods: electronically, through the USPS, or at a county drop-box.

For your mail ballot to be counted, it must be received by the county clerk’s office no later than 7:00 PM on Election Day. If you did not mail your ballot in with enough time to meet the deadline, you MUST deliver it to your county clerk’s office by 7:00 PM on Election Day.

The Clerk and Recorder’s Office will continue to engage stakeholders to identify opportunities for enhancing accessibility for all communities in El Paso County.
