To better serve voters in developing areas of the County, the Arapahoe County Clerk and Recorder’s office announced today it will install a 24-hour ballot drop box at the Arapahoe County Fairgrounds.
The drop box is being moved to the new location from the parking lot of the Aurora Motor Vehicle branch office at City Center Market on Chambers Rd. and 6th Ave. Voters in that area have two other drop box options less than a mile away from that location:
Clerk and Recorder Joan Lopez said the move conserves resources while making voting more accessible in growing areas of the County.
“We’re expanding access to an area that’s growing rapidly, while keeping the same convenience for voters in central Aurora,” Lopez said. “The best part is that we’re using existing resources and saving taxpayer dollars.”
Arapahoe County will manage 35 drop boxes for the General Election in November, all of which are open 24 hours and video monitored. Drop boxes will open the same day ballots begin mailing to voters, Oct. 17.
