Your Colorado voting questions, answered

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — If you’re a Colorado resident and registered to vote, you should have received a ballot by now. If you haven’t, or you’re not sure what to do next, read on.

Most of the issues addressed below can be taken care of at a Voter Service and Polling Center. There are several centers in every county in southern Colorado. Tap the name of your county for a list of hours and locations.

What if I’m not registered to vote?

You can register to vote at any Voter Service and Polling Center until 7 p.m. on Election Day.

You can register if you meet all of the following requirements:

  • You’re over 18 on November 8
  • You’re a United States citizen
  • You’ve lived in Colorado for at least 22 days as of November 8
  • You’re not serving a sentence of confinement, detention, or parole for a felony conviction

I filled out my ballot. How do I return it? 

Before 7 p.m. on Election Day, return your ballot to a voter service and polling center or to a 24-hour drop-off box. There are dozens of drop boxes across southern Colorado. Tap the name of your county for a list.

What if I prefer to vote in person?

You can surrender your mail-in ballot and vote in-person at a Voter Service and Polling Center. Everyone who votes in-person must provide an ID, such as a Colorado driver’s license.

What if I have a question that’s not answered here?
