Questions and Answers
How do I vote?
If you are registered to vote with a current address, a mail ballot will be sent to the address associated with your voter registration. If you prefer, you can vote in person at a Voter Service and Polling Center starting October 26.
How do I know if I am registered to vote?
You can go to www.govotecolorado.com to check your registration. If you are registered and you need to update your address, you can do this at the same time.
What if I am not a registered voter?
You can register to vote at any time up to and including Election Day at a Voter Service and Polling Center in your county or at your County Clerk’s office, or by going to www.govotecolorado.com (if you have a Colorado driver’s license or state ID card). However, in order to have a ballot mailed to you, you need to register on or before October 26, 2015.
When are mail ballots being sent?
Ballots will be put in the mail between October 12 and October 16. If you are a military or overseas voter, ballots will have been be mailed no later than September 19, 2015.
What if I don’t get my ballot?
There could be a number of reasons that you do not receive a mail ballot:
- You have moved – If you have moved and have not updated your voter registration address, you may not receive a mail ballot in the mail. You can still vote. You should contact your County Clerk and Recorder or visit a Voter Service and Polling Center.
- Your ballot was lost in the mail – While this is unusual, you can get a replacement ballot from your County Clerk and Recorder or by visiting a Voter Service and Polling Center.
If you do not receive a mail ballot for these or any other reason, you should contact your County Clerk and Recorder or visit a Voter Service and Polling Center, and you can receive a ballot and/or have your questions answered about your mail ballot.
When does my ballot have to be returned?
All ballots must be returned by 7:00 PM on Election Day, November 3, 2015. Postmarks DO NOT count.
How do I return my ballot?
You can return your ballot several different ways:
- By putting it in the US Mail (be sure to allow time for delivery; ballots must be received by 7pm on Tuesday November 3 — postmarks don’t count);
- By dropping it off at a Drop Off Location in your county;
- By delivering it in person to any Voter Service and Polling Center in your county.
What if I want to vote in person or need to vote on a machine?
You can go to any Voter Service and Polling Center in your county and vote in person. Your mail ballot will be cancelled and you will be given either a paper ballot or instructions for voting on a machine, depending upon your county. All counties are required to have voting machines that are accessible for voters with disabilities at the Voter Service and Polling Centers.
What about ID? Do I have to show my ID to vote?
If you go to a Voter Service and Polling Center to vote in person, you will need to bring a form of ID with you. There is no photo ID requirement in Colorado. For a list of IDs that can be used to vote in Colorado, see this list. If you are voting for the first time in Colorado and did not provide ID when you registered to vote, you will need to supply a copy of your ID with our mail ballot. In this case, your mail ballot packet will be marked to show that you need to supply an ID. See this list for acceptable forms of ID.
Do I have to drop off my ballot in the county where I live or can I drop it off in a different county (i.e. where I work, where I am visiting, where I used to live, etc.)?
You must drop off your ballot in the county where you live and are registered to vote. However, you can drop it off at any Drop Off or Voter Service and Polling Center anywhere in your county. If you want to vote in person, you must do so in the county where you live.
