On Nov. 5, the day before the election, 13 more polling centers will open, and the centers’ hours will change.
Ballots were mailed to the county’s nearly 380,000 active, registered voters Oct. 15. Anyone who didn’t get a ballot by last Friday still can get one by mail if they register to vote, update their address online, or request a replacement by the end of Oct. 29.
After that, they’ll have to visit a polling center or contact the county’s Elections Department at 575-8683 or at email@example.com. Voters can verify their registered address at govotecolorado.com. If it’s incorrect, the address can be updated with a Colorado driver’s license. Once the change has been made, the Clerk’s Office will automatically mail ballots to the new address.
Ballots must be received by 7 p.m. Nov. 6. If mailing your ballot, do so no later than Oct. 31, election officials advise, and use 71 cents of postage for the two-page ballot. After Oct. 31, you can deposit your ballot at a polling center or in one of the county’s 15 drop-off boxes, open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
