Broomfield Clerk and Recorder Jim Candelarie, staffers and election judges opted to show off their wooden U today, the first day that all clerks must open the minimum required number of Voter Service and Polling Centers.

VSPC’s, as they’re called, are where county residents can vote in person, get a replacement ballot, get a ballot of one wasn’t mailed to them and more. Most counties have a list of their voting center locations on their website.

Broomfield’s U.

Secretary of State Wayne Williams is handing out the U’s as part of the UChooseCO campaign to educate unaffiliated voters that they can participate in the June 26 primary election, but they can only vote one ballot. The campaign has a web pageFacebook page, a Twitter account and its own hashtag, #UChooseCO.

At least every week day between now and the June 26 primary the Secretary of State’s office will highlight a wooden U or two. They’ve been decorated by lawmakers, county clerks, a former mayor and a former governor. Check out more decorated U’s on Facebook and Twitter.
