What if I’m not registered to vote in Colorado yet?

If you’ve lived in Colorado at least 22 days prior to Election Day, then you can register to vote any time up to and including Election Day.

In order to receive a mail ballot in the mail, you must be registered by October 29th. After this date, visit a Voter Service Center in your county to register in-person and cast a ballot.

You can check your registration or register to vote online at GoVoteColorado.com or go in-person to a Voter Service Center in your county.

I am a student from another state living in Colorado to attend school. Can I vote here?

Yes, students have the right to register to vote at the location where they go to school. If you consider your school address in Colorado to be your home at this time, then you can register and vote at that address. However, of course, you can only vote in one state.

I didn’t get a ballot in the mail. Can I still vote?

Yes! If you didn’t get a ballot in the mail, it may be because you aren’t registered at your current address, that you aren’t registered to vote in Colorado at all, or that it just simply got lost in the mail somehow. You can still go pick up a mail ballot in person or vote in person by going to any Voter Service Center in your county. Go to JustVoteColorado.org to find the nearest Voter Service Center.
