Every eligible voter registered in Colorado by October 29th will be sent a mail ballot. You have all options for how to vote: mail your ballot back, drop it off, or vote in person. You can register or update your address in person through Election Day.
To vote with a mail ballot….
Drop it off:
You can drop off your ballot at any ballot dropbox or Voter Service Center in the state. Your ballot must be *received* by 7pm on Election day.
Mail it in:
If you mail your ballot back, be sure to affix postage. All ballots must be *received* by a County Clerk by 7pm on November 6th. Postmarks do not count, so we recommend mailing your ballot by October 30th.
You may need to include a photocopy (or printed photo) of an acceptable form of ID with your mail ballot— please refer to your mail ballot to see if this is required of you.
To vote in person
At any Voter Service Center in your county, you can register, update your address, and vote in person anytime up to and including Election Day. In-person early voting starts Oct. 22nd and ends at 7pm on November 6th. Note: you *must* bring a form of ID to vote in person; acceptable forms include: CO Driver’s License, CO Student ID, Passport, Military ID, or Utility Bill. For a full list of acceptable forms of ID, go to justvotecolorado.org.

GETTING YOUR VOTE IN ON TIME
If you’re voting with your mail ballot: Your ballot must be*received*by your County Clerk by 7PM on Election Day, November 6th. Postmarks do NOT count, so if it’s getting close to November 6th, drop it off in person instead of putting it in the mail.If you’re voting in person: It’s unlikely that polling centers will have lines, but as long as you’re in line by 7PM on Election Day, you have the right to vote. Stay in line!
If you don’t have the correct ID, you always have the right to vote a provisional ballot. An election official may contact you after the election to square things up so that they can count your ballot.
CHALLENGES & INTIMIDATION
If anyone challenges your right to vote or intimidates you at the polling place, you still always have the right to cast a ballot.
