While all Colorado voters receive a ballot in the mail, it is still vitally important to have centrally located Voter Service and Polling Center locations for voters who either need to vote in person with special equipment or simply prefer to cast their ballot in person. Voter Service and Polling Centers are places residents can drop off a mail ballot, cast a ballot in person, request a replacement ballot, register to vote or update registration information, or vote using equipment for persons with disabilities.
The Colorado County Clerks Association will grant 4 regional one-time awards in the amount of $1,000 to seniors graduating from Colorado high schools to further their education at any university, college, junior college or technical institution. Financial aid awarded by the association will be remitted to the institution of attendance and will be credited to the student's account. Each district will select a finalist and forward their selection to the Executive Board by April 24, 2015.
Any legal, permanent resident of Boulder County enrolled in, or applying to, a vocational training program or institution of higher learning in the State of Colorado as a full, or part-time student is eligible to apply. Scholarship announcements have been mailed to all high school offices in the eligible counties, and to all Colorado higher education institutions. To finalize the election, as stated by law, the Boulder County Clerk prepared and made available to the public a statement of the total number of votes cast in the election for each candidate and for and against each ballot issue.
Last week, Clerk Hall received word that the Secretary of State’s office accepted the official statewide abstract of votes cast for state races and issues. Although some have raised questions about the effect of the canvass board’s prior decision not to certify, Clerk Hall says the election results stand.
Because the margin of victory was so large in all of the races and ballot issues involved, no recount was triggered or requested. Composition of the canvass board: The canvass board is composed of two members from each of the “major” political parties plus the Clerk. 2014 Canvass Board Vote: This year, the canvass board signed off on the election audit, which tests the election’s vote tallying systems and processes to ensure accuracy, but in a 4-to-3 decision voted to not certify the election results.
Earlier this week, elections staff completed the 2014 election audit, a post-election quality assurance test that ensures the accuracy of the machine tally of votes.
Despite the fact that there were no documented discrepancies found in the audit or reconciliation that impacted the outcome of any contest, the Boulder County Canvass Board voted in a 4-to-3 decision to not certify the election. In regard to these actions, Boulder County Clerk and Recorder Hillary Hall had the following to say, “The Canvass Board’s decision not to certify is purely political, without basis and out of line with their role as defined by Colorado law. Hall continued, “The election judges and our staff did an outstanding job conducting the 2014 General Election.
By Secretary of State Rule, if nothing found in the audit or reconciliation of the election impacts the outcome of the election, the results must be certified.
The Canvass Report, Statement of Vote and audit documentation is now available at BoulderCountyVotes.org. The server upgrade will enhance maintenance and support of the Colorado State Titling and Registration system, which means better performance for the citizens of Colorado. The Division of Motor Vehicles apologizes for any inconvenience due to this important maintenance work. Boulder County also has three 24-Hour Ballot Drop Boxes that can be utilized overnight tonight and up until 7 p.m.
Voters who have returned their mail ballots can check BoulderCountyVotes.org to make sure their voted ballot has been received by the Boulder County Elections Division. Additionally, for the public’s convenience, the Elections Division has added a new ballot drop-off location at the Lyons Town Hall. Visit BoulderCountyVotes.org to view ballot content, see if your ballot has been processed if returned, or find more information about the election.
Specifically, the recent news article mentioned the need for additional Republican Party election judges for Signature Verification roles.
During each open house, Boulder County Clerk and Recorder Hillary Hall will give walking tours of the election wing approximately every 30 minutes as needed. These tours offer people interested in local elections the opportunity to see how ballots are processed, understand how signatures are verified on mail ballots, and learn about how ballot resolution works among other ballot processing procedures and safeguards. Also, any citizen who has resided in Colorado at least 22 days may register up to and including Election Day.

In this map the ocean appears as a watery zone, of equal breadth in every part, encircling the world. While centered precisely on Jerusalem, Paradise, in the Far East (top), is conceived in a somewhat exceptional manner. The draftsmana€™s excessive regard for a literal interpretation of the Old and New Testaments explains the orbo-centric position of Jerusalem. The closest relation of the Psalter map is the Ebstorf, which is probably junior by at least half a century; but the former is remarkable for a number of old names which do not occur on the maps of either Ebstorf or Hereford maps. The Psalter and Ebstorf maps also have a curiously similar treatment of the Caspian Rampart (otherwise Alexandera€™s Wall, the Hyrcanian Mountains, or Barrier of the Jews - some scholars believe that this feature is actually the reflection of a vague or confused reference to the Great Wall of China), shutting in the Gog-Magogs and other monsters of the North; but the Gates of Alexander are more clearly marked on the Psalter than anywhere else in this family of maps. With the Hereford map the textual correspondence is almost as noticeable as with the Ebstorf map; the difference in cartographic form are often probably mere arbitrary eccentricities of the designer. Outside its own a€?familya€™, the Psalter map has some points of agreement both with Lambert of St. In coloration, the Psalter map shows seas in green (except the Red Sea which is colored red), the rivers are blue, and the relief is represented by naturally colored lobed chains. The most luxurious medieval Psalters contain full-page illuminations before the text, and a series of illuminated initials within it; this Psalter has both. The fact that Jerusalem is in the center of the map, and the whole world is presided over at the top by Christ attended by angels, clearly shows that medieval people saw geography in terms of the biblical world, and Eartha€™s creation by God. It would be easy to assume, looking at a map like this, that medieval map-makers were ignorant or incapable of making maps that are a€?accuratea€™ in the modern sense, but this would be to overlook their purpose. The Psalter can be dated from 1225 to 1262 or later: the year in which Richard of Chichester was made a saint. This page in an illuminated manuscript is one of the most important surviving examples of 13th century map-making. Barber, Peter, a€?The Manuscript Legacy: Maps in the Department of Manuscripts,a€? The Map Collector, September 1984.

A zone of monstrous races runs along the southern coast of Africa.A  Among the monsters of this region are Dog-headed Folk and people with heads in various stages of aggressiveness, having either descended between their shoulders or else absorbed the entire trunk of the body.

Boulder County will have 16 Voter Service and Polling Centers open throughout the county on Election Day with some of those locations opening as early as two weeks before Election Day. Members of the Executive Board of the County Clerk's Association will finalize the scholarship awards by May 1, 2015.
There are no restrictions as to the course of study or training which may be pursued, and no restrictions are placed upon applications by reason of race, creed, age, gender, or national origin.
Applications will be reviewed by a local committee appointed by Sheriff Pelle, and a selection will be made on the basis of criteria established by CSOC. Since then, this effort has continued as a meaningful expression of the sheriffs’ confidence in and respect for education and training.
For more information, contact your local high school, college, County Sheriffs of Colorado, or the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office. At this point, challenges to the election of candidates to office or the result of a ballot issue election are allowed only in narrow circumstances, such as fraud or corruption that could change the result of the election. In the 2010 gubernatorial race, candidate Tom Tancredo of the American Constitution Party received more than 10% of the vote statewide, the American Constitution Party (ACN) earned “major” party status until the next gubernatorial election, this year. This was in spite the fact that there were no significant discrepancies in the audit or in the reconciliation reports.
There was previously an election rule allowing a county clerk to certify local election results when the canvass board failed to certify.
Boulder County used the state prescribed audit process which randomly selects the scanning systems, the electronic machines and the contests which to audit.
Our election vote reconciliation and audit show that the Boulder County election results are accurate.
Colorado currently has three major parties: American Constitution, Democratic and Republican.
They have tried for years to get the courts or the legislature to change the way election canvass boards conduct their business, but have been unsuccessful in their attempts.
Our office recommends that if you need a printed title immediately, that you either come in prior to the upgrade on Friday, November 7 or afterwards on Wednesday, November 12.
Beginning on Monday, November 3, seven additional Voter Service and Polling Centers will be available to service voter needs. If you need to register to vote, update your registration information, request a replacement ballot, or vote using equipment or facilities for people with disabilities, please visit a Voter Service and Polling Center. Those positions have been filled by the Republican Party Chair and any additional interested individuals must contact the party.
No mail ballot is ever processed and counted without a bipartisan team of election judges verifying that the signature on your ballot envelope matches the signature on your voter registration record.
Drive-by ballot drop-off locations open in Boulder, Longmont, Louisville, and a new walk-up station in Erie. The Psalms consist of 150 ancient songs, grouped together to form one of the Old Testament books of the Bible.
In addition, its map is a unique representation of the world, in an age when foreign travel was difficult and hazardous, and the art of map-making - in the modern sense - in its infancy. But within this overall structure, the map demonstrates an interest in more local places: the countries of the British Isles are discernable in the lower left quadrant, and despite the very limited space available one can make out rivers such as the Thames and Severn, and London is marked with a gold dot.
A map such as this was not intended, like a modern atlas, to guide someone in their travels from one place to another, but to show important places in an overall scheme.
It tells us much about 13th century English men and womena€™s knowledge of the world around them, and about their understanding of their place within it. The heads of Adam and Eve appear within the enclosure, which seems to be marked off with lofty and symmetrical mountains. In particular they often have to build on steep slopes and therefore the houses need to be adapted accordingly. In fact, since taking office, Secretary Williams and I have already met and spoken several times at length, and while our parties may differ, our dedication to administering proper and fair elections is aligned. CSOC considers this an investment in the future and believes that our membership is helping to provide deserving students with an opportunity to make a positive contribution to society. Additionally, the final Statement of Vote, a document that shows precinct-by-precinct results for every candidate and issue on the Boulder County ballots this year, will be forwarded to the Colorado Secretary of State’s office to become part of the official statewide election record and is available now online.
Despite this pre-calculated political action, the Boulder County Elections Division anticipates that the Colorado Secretary of State’s office will accept the results of the election as they did after both the 2012 General Election and 2014 Primary Election when similar political action was taken by a Canvass Board (see below for background details). In Boulder County, like every other clerk office, we simply follow election law when conducting our canvass. The Elections Division also has several drive-by ballot drop-off locations where voters can turn in their mail ballot without even exiting their car.
With the opening of these locations, that brings the total number of Voter Service and Polling Centers servicing the public to 13 within the County. Visitors will be able to observe workers processing ballots for the Tuesday, November 4 General Election.
So make sure to sign your ballot envelope as you normally would – then check to make sure we received your mail ballot by visiting BoulderCountyVotes.org. Avoid the rush and visit one our Voter Service and Polling Centers this Saturday from 9 a.m. In the Middle Ages (and down to the present day) they formed a fundamental part of Christian and Jewish worship, for ecclesiastics and lay-people alike; many people learned to read by being taught the Psalms.
In fact medieval people knew that the world was not flat: a 13th century encyclopedia compares the way in which humans can walk around the surface of the globe to the way in which a fly can walk around an apple without falling off when it is upside-down at the bottom. The distortion of a€?reala€™ geography can be compared to the way in which modern maps of city subway systems - such as Harry Becka€™s London Underground map - radically re-arrange distances and placements to make a more comprehensible diagram.


Other saints in the calendar (such as the relatively obscure St Erkenwald, a seventh-century bishop of London) indicate that the book was probably made in London, and this is supported by the style of the illumination. The Fura series features a design that is a large house on a site that would normally be restricted. It offers a complimentary blend between our traditional house designs and the contemporary Trend designs with large windows and high ceilings to maximize the views of either the countryside or even the sea. I look forward to having a strong working relationship with Secretary Williams and his staff and am confident that our offices will have much improved communication.Last December, in the midst of closing out an election (which is an extremely detailed process), the now former Secretary of State Scott Gessler issued a report on our office practices.
Additionally, Boulder County’s election had no documented discrepancies in the audit or the reconciliation that impacted the outcome of any contest.
Nothing in Colorado law states that a canvass board’s decision not to certify the county’s abstract of votes nullifies the election of county candidates or decisions on county or local ballot issues.
As of October 31, in Boulder County, the Republican Party represents 46,316 active and inactive voters, the Democratic Party represents 101,259 active and inactive voters, and the American Constitution Party represents 313 active and inactive voters. During this time, business at the Clerk and Recorder’s office Division of Motor Vehicle will be conducted as usual on Monday, November 10, except for a few small changes (Note: County offices will be closed on Tuesday, November 11 for Veterans Day).
Any citizen who has resided in Colorado at least 22 days may register and vote, just visit any Voter Service and Polling Center and don’t forget to bring your ID.
The Psalms were often written out separately from the rest of the Bible, often preceded by a calendar of the Churcha€™s feast-days, and followed by various types of prayers; such a book is known as a Psalter. Despite this, the world was conventionally represented as a flat circle, oriented with the East at the top (a€?to orienta€™ something literally means to make it face east). It has also been proposed that the map is a miniature version of one that is known to have been painted on the wall of the Kinga€™s bed-chamber in the Palace of Westminster.
As I stated at the time, I was extremely disappointed in the accusations in the report and the manner in which Secretary Gessler released the report with no interaction with my office.
A final report is issued to the Boulder County Canvass Board for verification prior to election certification.
It is unfortunate and frankly a disservice to the voters of Boulder County that once again the Canvass Board chose to operate outside the boundaries of their duties as outlined in law and rule. Services available include: same-day voter registration and voting, in-person voting, ballot drop-off, replacement ballots, and voting using equipment and facilities for person with disabilities. The upper part of the circle is occupied by Asia, and the lower half divided into two quarters for Europe and Africa. Our process after each election is to spend a lengthy period of time examining our practices and how they can be improved upon.
