Mail-In Voting

All Mail Ballots

Colorado is an all mail ballot state with ballots automatically mailed to registered voters to their mailing address of record. Ballots are mailed between 18-22 days prior to each election conducted by the County Clerk. Completed ballots may be returned via mail or by dropping them into a ballot box at a drop-off location.  Overseas Citizens and Military voters can go to the Federal Voting Assistance Program for information any any questions regarding all your printed or online information by following this link for UOCAVA information:  If a voter needs a ballot mailed to an address other than their regular mailing address on record, they must apply for a Mail-In Ballot Application (Formerly Absentee Ballot).

Replacement Ballots

If you have spoiled, lost, or never received the mail ballot sent to your address, you may request a replacement ballot to be mailed to you by calling, emailing, or coming into one of our offices. As of 8 days before the election we can no longer mail your ballot and you will be required to pick it up in person.

Identification Requirements

Colorado law requires voters to present identification prior to voting in-person at a Voter Service and Polling Center or prior to returning a mail ballot if their voter registration did not contain verifiable ID information.

If voting by mail, the envelope will be stamped ID REQUIRED in red, and a photocopy of your ID must be included in the return envelope (please place outside of the secrecy sleeve containing the voted ballot). View Colorado's acceptable forms of ID listing. If you have questions, please call the County Clerk at 970-878-9460.

Party Affiliation

As of 2018 unaffiliated voters are able to vote in a primary election.  Unaffiliated voters will receive all ballots, however, you can only vote on one party's ballot. You can notify us if you have a preference and wish to receive only one ballot for that particular election.

Unaffiliated voters may affiliate online at Go Vote Colorado no later than 8 days prior to the primary election and be mailed a ballot. Unaffiliated voters also have the option to affiliate in person at a Voter Service and Polling Center prior to voting.
