The National Association of County Recorders, Election Officials and Clerks awarded Scott Doyle the organization's Election Administration Best Practice Award.
This Best Practice Award is bestowed on Doyle for his implementation of the new Vote Center concept in Larimer County. "This award belongs to our Elections team. They are the heroes who made this unique concept a resounding success," said Doyle. In the November 2003 election, Doyle offered the Vote Center concept as a new option for Larimer County Voters. "With Vote Centers, there is no longer a wrong place to vote in our County," he added. The success in Larimer County lead to legislation being passed in 2004 allowing the use of Vote Centers statewide, and nationwide interest is growing rapidly.
This prestigious award is bestowed by the NACRC at their annual conference as they seek to provide an "opportunity for election officials to receive special recognition in honor of their unique achievements and Best Practices in the field of election administration."
