Colorado Springs, CO – Due to the Waldo Canyon Fire the Office of the Clerk & Recorder at Citizens Service Center on Garden of the Gods Road was evacuated on June 26, 2012. Because of the evacuation the Election Department was unable to complete processing all ballots that were received on Election Day.
On Wednesday, with an escort from the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, election personnel removed all ballots and equipment necessary to complete the counting process to The Clerk & Recorder’s Southeast office located at Powers Blvd. and Airport Rd. The Clerk & Recorder hopes to have the process completed today and to release the remaining results this evening.
As always, the election process will be open to watchers and the media. Access may be limited because of space but the Election Department will work with all those present to ensure everyone can view the process.
