Vote Away From Home

Many residents of Douglas County are active and mobile. Ballots cannot be held or forwarded by the post office. There are options available to ensure a ballot is mailed to the desired location for any elections that take place while voters in Douglas County are away from home. For general travel within the United States, simply updating the address your ballot should be sent to is sufficient to ensure your ballot comes to you while you’re away from home. Listed below are services offered to voters who qualify and need additional assistance receiving their ballot on time.

 

Military – The Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA) allows all branches of the uniformed services and their spouses and/or dependents who are absent from the state because of a service member’s active duty to be mailed a ballot at a location of their choice. Additional organizations may also qualify. An out-of-state mailing address must be provided. If they qualify, voters may receive their ballot by email, fax, or mail. To learn more, please visit the Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP) website.

Overseas – U.S. citizens who are living overseas, and whose last residence before leaving the country was in Colorado are qualified to receive a ballot under the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA). If you qualify, you may choose to receive your ballot by email, fax or mail. An out-of-state mailing address must be provided. To learn more, please visit the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office web page.
