November proposal for public comment on VSPCs

Ballot drop box

Arapahoe County needs your comments on Voter Service and Polling Centers for Nov. 3 General Election.

Pursuant to C.R.S. 1-5-102.9(1)(c)(II), the Elections Division of the Arapahoe County Clerk and Recorder is seeking public comments on the proposed designation of voter service and polling centers (VSPCs) for the November 3, 2020 General Election.

Based on updates to Colorado’s election law last year, Arapahoe County has been adding new VSPCs and 24-hour drop boxes across the county. Tracking through recent elections shows that our voters vastly prefer to return a mail ballot rather than vote in person, with over 90% of Arapahoe County voters casting that mail ballot in the last November Presidential Election of 2016. But VSPCs are an important part of Colorado’s gold standard election system, providing a place for voters to get replacement ballots, register to vote for the first time, update registration, vote in person, vote with accessible ballot marking devices, and another location to drop off a mail ballot.

For the November 3, 2020 General Election, Arapahoe County is planning to open 29 VSPCs and 32 drop boxes (open 24-hours). The VSPCs will be opening in two different Phases to accommodate early voters and then maximize locations for the final high turnout days leading into November 3. We have included a proposed VSPC and Drop Box map for reference in reviewing this proposal.

Read the full proposal here. Share your comments through this online form by Monday, April 27, 2020. You may also send suggestions directly by email to elections@arapahoegov.com or by mail to the Clerk and Recorder’s Office at 5334 South Prince St., Littleton, CO 80120. 

If you’d like to voice your comments in person, join Clerk Joan Lopez and Election Division personnel at their public meeting:
