Turn in your Primary Ballots by Tuesday, June 28, 7pm!

YOU SHOULD HAVE RECEIVED YOUR PRIMARY BALLOT IN THE MAIL BY NOW.

Remember, all elections in Colorado are MAIL-IN BALLOT (you can also drop them off in person). If you are unaffiliated you can affiliate up to and including Election Day, Tuesday, June 28. However, the Clerk cannot mail you a ballot after June 20. You will need to visit a Voter Service and Polling Center.

Not registered to vote? Go here.

All ballots must reach the Clerk’s office by Tuesday, June 28th by 7pm, but do it as soon as you can so you don’t forget!

If you look up your registration, you can view your sample ballot. [On mine, for instance, I have NINE PEOPLE who stand to represent me, so that’s why I know it’s important for me to vote.]

DID YOU KNOW you can track your ballot, to make sure the Clerk has received it? Go to this pageand click “Look-up your Voter Registration or Sample Ballot”
