ELECTION INFORMATION:

Current physical and mailing address needs to be correct for Voter Registration. 

 Colorado elections are mail ballot delivery elections; so ballots will be mailed to all eligible electors:

·       November 8, 2016 Presidential General Election will be mailed to all active eligible electors the week of October 17, 2016. 

 The ballot that is mailed to you is the Official Ballot for you and your location.  Please vote that ballot and either mail it back (adequate postage attached), or drop it off at the Clerk’s Office.

Ballots are not forwardable so it is very important that your address both physical and mailing is correct. 

 Your physical address determines what ballot issues you are eligible to vote on.  Example:  If the city is having a question on the ballot and you live in that city then you are eligible to vote on that question and if you don’t live in the city you will not be eligible to vote on that question. 

 For Voter Registration; please contact our office at 719-438-5421 or go to www.govotecolorado.com to update your information. 

  General Election: Tuesday, November 8, 2016 ballots will be mailed to all active voters registered in Kiowa County.  

 The Clerk’s Office can be reached at 438-5421 for voter and election questions.

ELECTION HISTORY INFORMATION:

Voting rights in the United States have been contentious over the country’s history.  Eligibility to vote in the U.S. is determined by both Federal and State law.  Currently, only citizens can vote in U.S. elections.  Absent of federal law or constitutional amendment, each State is given considerable discretion to establish qualifications within their own jurisdiction.  Federal role in elections has increased through amendments and enacted legislation, such as the Voting Rights Act.   The following gives background on the struggle we as Americans have endured to get this privilege: 

  •  1776 When this country announced its independence from Britain, voting rights were based on property ownership.  This typically meant that those voting were white males over the age of 21. 

  • 1787 In the newly drafted constitution, states were given the power to set voting mandates and most were still favorable to white males who owned property. 

  • 1830 Many states had dropped religion and property ownership as requirements for voting with a large percentage of the population voting at the polls.

  • 1868 The 14th Amendment recognizes African Americans as citizens, giving them the right to vote.  However, state officials continue attempts to deny this right. 

  • 1870 African Americans were given the right to vote in the 15th Amendment.  It prohibited any state or local government from denying that right.

  • 1890 Wyoming becomes the first state to recognize women’s right to vote and provide for it in a state constitution.  

  • 1920 The 19th Amendment was added to the constitution, giving women across the nation the right to vote.

  • 1940 Congress recognizes Native Americans as Citizens.  However it wasn’t until 1947 that all states granted them the right to vote. 

  • 1964 The 24th Amendment declares that no person should be denied the right to vote because they cannot pay a “poll tax”. 

  • 1965 An Amendment to the Voting Rights Act bans the use of literacy tests, poll taxes and other obstacles designed to keep people from voting. 

  • 1971 The voting age is lowered to 18. 

 Voting is a privilege and should be taken very seriously.  There have been many steps taken to ensure that everyone who is eligible to vote has the right to exercise their freedom to do so.  To provide fair and open elections is the very basis to making sure that we honor the ideal of “one-person-one-vote”.  It is about defending a right that is at the very foundation of democracy.  Listed above are some very good examples of why we should exercise our voting privilege and vote in every election that we are eligible to do so because every election is important or else we would not have one. 

 Please exercise your right to vote in every election.  Let your opinion be heard and what you stand for be voiced by your vote! 

The Primary Election will be held June 28, 2016 and the General Election will be held November 8, 2016.

 REMINDER:  County Offices will be closed February 15, 2016 in observance of President’s Day. 

 The Kiowa County Clerk and Recorder can be reached at 719-438-5421 for voter and election questions, recording information and motor vehicle questions.

Secretary Williams: Be careful about calls requesting voter information

 

DENVER, Sept. 9, 2016 -- State and county election officials have received numerous complaints this week from Colorado voters who are concerned about phone calls that appear to be an effort to obtain their personal and sensitive information.

During the automated calls, voters are advised their registration is incorrect and needs to be updated before they can receive a ballot for the November election. But both Democrats and Republicans who have received the calls told the Colorado Secretary of State's office or their county clerk that their registrations are current. At least one person reported being asked to provide a full date of birth after selecting the option for “more information.”

The individuals also have reported that the calls are from an organization identifying itself as “Go Vote CO” or “Go Vote Colorado.” Some voters believe the Secretary of State is somehow involved because that name is similar to the web address of the Secretary of State’s online voter registration system (www.GoVoteColorado.com). 

The Secretary of State’s office does not contact individual voters regarding voter registration issues except to respond to inquiries initiated by voters themselves.  Secretary of State Wayne Williams  reminds Colorado residents not to disclose sensitive personal information, such as month and day of birth, driver’s license or state-issued ID numbers, or Social Security numbers to any person or organization they do not know and trust, whether by telephone or otherwise.

Anyone with information concerning the individuals or organization responsible for conducting this telephone solicitation campaign identifying itself as “Go Vote Colorado” or “Go Vote CO” is asked to contact Elections Division legal analyst Chris Amero at 303-894-2200 ext. 6389 or chris.amero@sos.state.co.us at the Secretary of State’s office.


 

Colorado's New Design For Driver License and ID Cards

Sample Of New Colorado Driver License

The Colorado DMV will begin issuing driver licenses, instruction permits and identification cards with new designs in 2016. The card design includes an entirely new format and enhanced features, including laser-engraved information in grayscale, as well as new card material.

The new design will be issued at the Littleton, Aurora and Frisco state driver license offices during the pilot program, beginning in March 2016.

Valid driver licenses, instruction permits and identification cards with the current design can be used until their expiration date. The current design will continue to be issued at all other offices.




Colorado Open Record Requests (CORA)

PPursuant to C.R.S. 30-1-103 and 24-72-205 the Clerk’s office may charge for preparation and copies of requested document(s).
 Acceptance method: CORA requests are accepted by the Clerk’s office via fax or hard copy. Emailed CORA requests often enter junk mail boxes because they can come from unrecognized addresses. Or an employee may not have access to email within the 72 hour deadline to respond. It is in the requestor’s best interest to deliver it in a method or in more than one method so that any deputy clerk could pick it up, notify necessary personnel and begin the process.
 Delivery method: Documents are provided in paper or pdf format only. Documents provided under CORA are not provided in an editable format.  If a requester is not present within the county and inspection of the paper documents in person is burdensome, the clerk may mail, fax, ftp or email the documents.
