Voting by mail is quick, easy and safe. All registered voters in Colorado will receive a ballot in the mail a few weeks before Election Day, November 3. Ballots begin mailing to voters on October 9. If you do not receive your ballot or damage, lose, or make a mistake on your ballot, you can either request a replacement mail ballot from your county clerk or vote in-person at a voter service and polling center.
If you’re voting by mail, the county clerk and recorder must receive your ballot no later than 7:00 PM on Election Day, November 3 (postmarks don’t count). Voters can drop off their ballots at designated drop off sites, drop-boxes, or mail their ballots back. The Colorado Secretary of State recommends to return ballots by mail no later than 8 days before Election Day. Ballots must be in the hands of the county clerk by 7:00 PM on Election Day in order to be counted (postmarks do not count). You can even track your ballot to make sure it arrives -- register here.
If you lost, damaged, made a mistake on, or did not receive your ballot, you may vote in person. Contact your county election office to find a Voter Service and Polling Center near you. If you are voting in person, you must bring an ID. Find out what you can bring as an acceptable form of identification here.
You may vote in person at Voter Service and Polling Centers (VSPC) from Monday, October 19, 2020 to Monday, November 2, 2020. Contact your county clerk for more information and to find a VSPC near you.
Polls are open on Election Day from 7 am to 7 pm. As long as you are in line before 7 pm, you can vote! Contact your county election office to find a voter service and polling center near you.
Did you know that in Colorado, you can register at any time up to and including Election Day? You can register online at GoVoteColorado.com or in person at a Voter Service and Polling Center. If you register online before October 26, you will still receive your ballot by mail.
