Fort Carson on Thursday will become one of the few — if not the only — military post where a clerk-and-recorder’s office is operating on base.
Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams and El Paso County Clerk Chuck Broerman will be on hand for the grand opening.
Having a clerk’s office on base will allow Fort Carson’s military personnel, staff, contractors and retired military a convenient location to register to vote, record an official document, get a marriage license, obtain a driver’s license and title their vehicle, among other services. Others are welcome to visit the office after getting a day pass at Gate 1.
“When I was out running for office I heard people say, ‘How come governments don’t work together?'” Williams said. “Well, this is a case where government worked together.”
In addition to the clerk’s office, the Mountain Post Soldier Center, as it is called, also will offer an array of services for those stationed at Fort Carson.
