Ballots

Active registered Colorado voters are automatically sent ballots in the mail. With the ongoing pandemic, voting at home is the safest way to vote in the April 5 Municipal Election. Take action now to ensure you receive a mail ballot. Register to vote or verify and update your ballot mailing address at www.GoVoteColorado.gov. This is especially important if you have moved recently or if you haven’t voted in the past few elections.

Ballots for the April 5 Municipal Election are mailed beginning March 14. 

Here are some important things to keep in mind:

  • Consider adding an email address to your voter registration record. Emails are considered confidential and not part of the public voter file. But an email address helps the election office get in touch if a problem arises with your mailing address or ballot envelope signature.
  • March 21 is the last day to register and still be mailed a ballot. It is also the last day to request a replacement mail ballot be sent to your home. After this date, you can still register and vote or request a replacement ballot, but it must be done in-person. 
  • March 29 is the last recommended day to return your ballot by mail. Otherwise, simply use a ballot drop box (in front of Town Hall at 645 Holbrook Street) to return your ballot.
  • All ballots are due by 7 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, April 5.
