SAMPLE BALLOT FOR GENERAL ELECTION AVAILABLE
VISIT CLERK & RECORDER’S WEBSITE
Monday, September 24, 2012 – Colorado Springs, CO – A sample ballot for the 2012 General Election in November is now available on the El Paso County Clerk & Recorder’s website. The sample ballot includes all elected office races, as well as all questions and issues from the State and local jurisdictions. It differs from actual ballots because the sample includes everything. An actual ballot will have only the races, ballot issues and questions that the voter is eligible to vote on.
The Clerk’s Office provides a sample ballot to give voters the opportunity to become familiar with the candidates, questions and issues prior to receiving their mail-in ballot, early voting or going to the poll place on Election Day. The website address is http://car.elpasoco.com/election then hit the icon for “2012 Election Information”. In addition to the sample ballot, other useful election-related information is on the site.
A limited amount of printed sample ballots will be available soon at each of the Clerk’s four office locations shown below.
Main Office – Citizens Service Center – 1675 W. Garden of the Gods Road, Suite 2202
North Branch – Union Town Center – 8830 N. Union Blvd. (Research Pkwy. and Union Blvd.)
