Colorado law now mandates all elections be conducted via ballots by mail. Using a ballot received by mail means that you receive your official ballot in the mail, cast your votes in the privacy of your own home and return the ballot by mail or in person before the deadline. Since you do not have to go to a polling place to vote, using a ballot by mail really is the easiest way to vote!
All ballots are delivered to voters by mail and there is no longer a need to specifically request one.
Be sure to affix adequate postage for your ballot. Details for proper ballot postage can be found in the voter instructions inside your ballot envelope.
Ballot Receipt Deadline
Ballots must be received by 7:00 p.m. Election Day; Postmarks do not count. Ballots must be in a ballot box or a voter must be in line to place a ballot in a ballot box no later than the close of polls on Election Day.
The Process for a Ballot by Mail
Once a ballot is placed in a drop-off box at one of our Drop-off Locations, it takes approximately two business days for that ballot to be processed and show as received in our database. To learn more, watch the video below.
