Clear Creek County Watcher Information

Hi Harvie,

All of our VSPC and ballot processing operations take place at the Clear Creek County Courthouse in  Georgetown.  The VSPC will be opening on Monday October 24th at 8:30 am.  Normal hours of operation are 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday.  On Saturdays, October 29th and November 5th, we will be open from 10 am to 2 pm.  Our drop off location at the Idaho Springs City Hall will be open from 8 am to 5 pm on the same days stated above.  All of the other drop off locations are 24 hour monitored locations.  A team of bipartisan judges from the eastern part of the county pick up the ballots at the drop box at King-Murphy Elementary daily before coming to Georgetown.  They also pick up the ballot box from Idaho Springs City Hall on their way west to Georgetown.  Ballots from the drop box at the courthouse are retrieved each morning by election judges.  Ballots from the Jefferson County Library will either be mailed to us, or we will establish a schedule with Jeffco for picking up those ballots.

I anticipate starting the canvass on November 17th.  It should take at least two days to complete the canvass and the post election audit.  I plan to have the election certification completed by Tuesday, November 22nd.

Thank you for sending your watcher credentials ahead of time.
 Please let me know if you have further questions.
 Thank you.
