In all Coordinated, General, and Presidential Elections in Colorado, there are three ways you can vote:
For all Colorado elections, every registered voter receives a ballot i the mail. Your mail ballot will be sent to the mailing address provided when you registered to vote. If ballots have already been mailed and you wish to register late, same-day voter registration is available at a Voter Service & Polling Center.
To check what address you provided when registering to vote, please visit www.govotecolorado.gov.
If you wish to vote in person, need a replacement ballot, or wish to register after ballots have been mailed, you may do so at a Voter Service & Polling Center. To find your nearest location, please visit www.govotecolorado.gov.
Every valid mail ballot is counted. To be sure your ballot is valid, follow the instructions on the mail ballot envelope. This includes making sure your ballot is signed when it is returned.
For your ballot to be accepted, you must return your ballot no later than 7 p.m. on Election Day (other rules apply if you are a military or overseas voter).
Voters should consider signing up for BallotTrax - a service which will tell you when you ballot has been mailed to you, will alert you when your completed ballot was collected (from a drop-box, the mail, or from an in-person station), and will finally alert you when the ballot has been counted. Visit the Boulder County BallotTrax signup page or the Weld County BallotTrax signup page.
