Due to concerns of COVID-19 and to ensure social distancing at the polls, the Adams County Elections Department has updated the list of Voter Service and Polling Centers (VSPCs) for the State Primary on Tuesday, June 30.
The new VSPC locations are in larger buildings, allowing election workers and voters to maintain a six-foot distance and vote safely.
Ballot inserts listing VSPC locations were printed prior to this decision and will reflect outdated information. As always, voters can find the most current and trusted information regarding the election at AdamsVotes.com or on the Adams County Clerk & Recorder social media pages: Facebook, Twitter, and NextDoor.
“All Adams County voters have the right to vote safely and securely and moving some VSPCs protects that right,” says Adams County Clerk & Recorder Josh Zygielbaum. “My office is reaching out to voters in multiple ways to inform them of the new VSPC locations.”
Zygielbaum adds that the safest way to vote during a pandemic is to return a ballot by mail or by dropping it off at a 24-hour drop-box—there are 26 locations across the county. We strongly encourage voters who vote in-person to wear a mask while in the VSPC, but it is not required.
Here are the updated VSPC locations for the 2020 State Primary:
• Adams City Middle School, 4451 E. 72nd Ave., Commerce City 80022
• Adams County Economic Development, 12200 N. Pecos St., Westminster 80234
• Adams County Government Center, West Conference Center, 4430 S. Adams County Pkwy., Brighton 80601
• Bennett Middle School Multipurpose Room, 455 8th St., Bennett 80102
• Fletcher Primary School, 10455 E. 25th Ave., Aurora 80010
• Westminster Motor Vehicle, 8452 N. Federal Blvd., Westminster 80031
Ballots will be mailed to voters starting on Monday, June 8. Drop-box locations will also open on that date. VSPCs will be open Monday, June 22, through Election Day, Tuesday, June 30. See our website for hours of operation.
Ballots must be received at the Adams County Election Office, a designated ballot drop box, or VSPC location by 7 p.m. on Election Day, June 30. Ballots received after that time will not be counted. Postmarks do not count as a received date.
The Elections Office can be reached at 720.523.6500 or firstname.lastname@example.org, and they are open Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., throughout the month of June.
