LIFE OF A MAIL BALLOT
What Happens after you Place Your Mail Ballot in the Mail Box
Tuesday, August 21, 2012 - Colorado Springs, CO - In November, over 158,000 El Paso County voters will cast their ballot by mail. Many often wonder if their ballot will count and what happens to their ballot after they drop it in the mail. In an effort to clarify this matter and boost voter confidence the El Paso County Clerk & Recorder’s Office has produced a short video on what happens to a mail ballot after it is received by the El Paso County Election Department.
“Our office wanted to provide clarity regarding mail ballot processing. This video highlights the processes and the measures we take to not only protect voters’ privacy but also to ensure that every vote is counted in a fair and accurate manner,” said Clerk Wayne Williams.
Voters can also ensure that their ballot has been received and processed and will be counted by going to www.GoVoteColorado.com and entering their information.
