Adams County Seeks Public Input on Voter Service

and Polling Centers for 2016 General Election

The Adams County Clerk and Recorder’s Office is seeking public input on Voter Service and Polling Centers (VSPCs) for the General Election on Nov. 8.

“We want to have our Voter Service and Polling Centers in areas that are convenient for Adams County voters because it is their election,” said Stan Martin, Adams County Clerk and Recorder. “That’s why I am asking voters to comment on the proposed sites before they are finalized.”

While all voters in Colorado receive a ballot by mail, Colorado law requires a minimum number of VSPCs be operated throughout the county. Adams County currently has 15 proposed sites for the 2016 General Election, but would like to hear public input on those sites and any other recommendations.

Current VSPC location sites in Adams County include:

 Adams County Economic Development

 Adams County Government Center

 Anythink Library-Wright Farms

 Armory Performing Arts Center (Brighton)

 Aurora Workforce Center

 Bennett Community Center

 Brighton Recreation Center

 Commerce City Recreation Center

 Commerce City Sheriff’s Substation

 Margaret Carpenter Recreation Center

 Perl Mack Community Center

 Reunion Recreation Center

 Thornton Civic Center

 Todd Creek Farms Metro District

 Westminster Motor Vehicle

The Clerk and Recorder’s Office will hold an official public comment period from June 20 to July 22. During this time, suggestions for potential VSPC sites can be sent via email to mailto:Adams.Elections@adcogov.org or through an online survey, found at adcogov.org.

Comments can also be made at a public meeting on July 12 at 6 p.m. in the Public Hearing Room on the first floor of the Adams County Government Center at 4430 S. Adams County Parkway, Brighton.

At VSPCs, voters have the option to cast a ballot in person, use accessible voting equipment, replace a ballot, drop-off a mail ballot, register to vote, and update their voter registration file. All VSPC locations will provide special voting equipment to assist voters with disabilities.
