New elections law builds public input into site selection process
(Denver) – Denver Clerk and Recorder Debra Johnson is seeking public input from voters regarding possible locations for Voter Service and Polling Centers for the upcoming 2013 Coordinated Election. Voter Service and Polling Centers are one-stop shops for voters to register to vote, cast a mail ballot, receive a replacement ballot or receive any other election-related service.
“It’s important that voting locations are accessible and familiar to voters. In the past, we’ve used recreation centers and libraries along with a church in order to make sure that we had an even distribution of Service Centers throughout Denver,” Johnson said. “We will continue to use these similar sites but would like to hear the public’s suggestions on any potential new sites.”
There will be eight Voter Service and Polling Centers in the City and County of Denver for the November 5 Coordinated Election. There will also be 13 24-hour mail ballot drop-off locations located across Denver. A map of all locations is available at www.DenverVotes.org on the Voter Information page.
The Denver Elections Division will be receiving public input regarding locations for Voter Service and Polling Centers from July 23 through August 6, 2013. Comments and suggestions may be submitted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, by phone at 311, on Facebook at DenverElections, on Twitter at DenverElections (use hashtag #DenverVotes) or by delivering written comments to the Denver Elections Division at 200 W. 14th Ave. Suite 100, Denver CO 80204.
