It is officially election season for what feels like the longest election ever.
Ballots will be mailed for Colorado's first all-mail presidential election beginning Oct. 17, meaning voters who want to be done with the election can soon drop their ballots in the mail and be done with it.
Ballots for the Nov. 8 general election will be mailed through Oct. 31, but voter registration must be updated for voters to receive a ballot. Information about all of the ballot measures and candidate statements can be found in The Gazette's Voter Guide.
El Paso County residents can register to vote and pick up ballots from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at the El Paso County Clerk and Recorder's Office, 1675 W. Garden of the Gods Road, Suite 2202.
Colorado residents may register to vote or change parties at www.GoVoteColorado.com through Oct. 31, or in person through election day at county clerk offices. Identification is required to cast a ballot in person.
It is recommended that voters do not return their ballots in the mail after Nov. 2. Postmarked ballots received after 7 p.m. Nov. 8 will not be counted.
People who have been a resident of Colorado for at least 22 days before the election can register to vote or change their party affiliation through Election Day.
