To help voters prepare for the election so that they can avoid lines on Election Day, the Douglas County Elections Office offers this simple checklist to make sure your vote gets counted.
- Check your mail for your ballot beginning the week of October 17th. If you have not received your ballot by October 24th, verify your registration information at GoVoteColorado.com. If your registration is updated, allow two to nine business days for ballot delivery. If your registration was current, please contact our office for a replacement ballot.
- Research the topics and issues on your ballot using the Ballot Information Page
- Vote your ballot.
- Place your ballot in the return envelope that has your name on it. Please do not use another household member’s envelope to return your ballot.
- Return your ballot early to avoid lines by visiting one of the Ballot Drop-off Locations within Douglas County.
- If you would like to return your ballot by mail, please affix adequate postage and allow two to nine business days for it to be returned to our office. Ballots must be received no later than 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 8th in order to be counted. Postmarks do not count.
- If you require a replacement ballot, or have need to obtain a ballot after October 24th, visit a Voter Service and Polling Center. Voters must show ID to receive a ballot in person.
