As ballots start arriving in mailboxes across Colorado leading up to the Nov. 4 General Election, voters should know that their county clerks have been working hard to deliver a more convenient and more secure election than ever before.
Members of the bi-partisan Colorado County Clerks Association are committed to working together to improve the voter experience and to conducting elections with accuracy and integrity for all eligible Colorado voters.
To help, we’ve launched MyColoradoVote.com, where you can update your registration or register to vote and find other pertinent information to casting your ballot. The site links to county websites, answers to frequently asked questions and interactive maps to find your voting locations.
It’s an important resource given recent changes to how elections are conducted in Colorado.
In this year’s general election, all eligible, registered voters will be sent a mail ballot; you will sign it and return it by mail or at a ballot drop-off box. Voters wanting the in-person experience can visit any Voter Service and Polling Center in your county. Think of these voter centers as one-stop-shops where you can vote in person, replace your ballot, change your address, use accessible voting machines and so on. All ballot drop-off locations and Voter Service and Polling Center locations will open from at least Oct. 20 through 7 p.m. on Election Day with hours on Saturdays for your convenience.
Colorado has earned national praise for its election administration processes, recently ranking 4th among states by Pew Charitable Trusts.
The new flexibility for Colorado voters is only possible with advanced technology and security measures that ensure the integrity of elections. By linking post office, death and felony conviction records with voter registration information and driver’s license information, our elections are becoming more efficient for voters and taxpayers without sacrificing security and accuracy.
In a time of information overload and political rhetoric, the bi-partisan Colorado County Clerks Association has developed MyColoradoVote.com, as your resource for non-partisan and reliable voting information and
County Clerks across Colorado are committed to making the voting experience as easy as possible. You can help by visiting MyColoradoVote.com as soon as possible.
