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.  All of the VSPCs serving El Paso County are equipped with ballot marking devices that are ADA accessible where voters can vote in person.

We are proud of having received the 2017 Independence Award which recognized the fine collaboration between our office and The Independence Center. The Clerk and Recorder’s Office will continue to engage stakeholders to identify opportunities for enhancing accessibility for all communities in El Paso County.

Electronic Ballot

Eligible Colorado voters receive mail ballots. Voters with a disability may request to access their ballot and mark their ballot electronically. An eligible voter must print the voted ballot, the accessible ballot application, and sign the accessible ballot application. All of these materials must be returned through the USPS or in person at a county drop-box or county VSPC. 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.

You may also vote in person. 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.
