November 3, 2020 General Election
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 November 3 General Election (Vote Centers are available for those that need or want to vote in-person). 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 a few elections.
Ballots for the November 3 General Election are mailed beginning October 9. Here are some important things to keep in mind:
- Sign up at either http://www.WeldVotes.com or www.BoulderCountyVotes.org to track your mail ballot using Ballot Track a free service that will notify you when your ballot is printed, mailed, and received for processing.
- 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.
- October 26 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 you. After this date, you can still register and vote or request a replacement ballot, but it must be done in-person. There is no registration deadline.
- October 26 is also the last recommended day to return your ballot by mail. Otherwise, simply use a ballot drop box to return your ballot.
- All mail ballots are due by 7 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, November 3.
