COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -

The El Paso County Clerk and Recorder’s Office is temporarily changing some policies for those who have lost or had to evacuate their home.  “We are waiving fees for those who lost vital documents in the fire.  If you’re worried about replacing your home, you shouldn’t have to worry about paying fees to replace documents like your marriage license and vehicle titles,” Clerk and Recorder Wayne Williams said in a news release. 

Victims of the Black Forest Fire will find the following changes in the Clerk and Recorder's Office:

Recording Department

Motor Vehicle

Clerk to the Board/Liquor Licenses

Elections

Those who experienced a home loss should expect a letter from the Elections Department regarding their voter registration options in advance of the November 2013 Coordinated Election.

Fire victims can call 719-520-7322 if they have any questions or concerns they need to relay to the Clerk and Recorder's Office.
