Stopping Misinformation


Fight back with facts.
Together, we can counter threats to our elections.

What you can do:

Keep it realThink before you link so you don’t spread mis/disinformation.

Stick to the facts. Encourage yourself and the people you care about to rely only on and for trusted and reliable election information.

Separate rumor from reality. The Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) debunks potential areas of mis/disinformation.

Educate yourself.  Visit the Colorado Secretary of State website on accurate election information Opinions Are Fun. Facts are Better.

Know the system. Colorado is regarded as a national leader in the security and integrity of elections. Watch the  Douglas County Life of a Ballot video to see the process in action!

Track your ballot. Track the status of your mail ballot, from mailed to accepted.  BallotTrax is a ballot tracking and messaging system that provides voters with notifications by phone, email, or text about the status of your mail ballot.  Click here to check the status of your ballot and to select your notification preferences.

Make sure your vote counts. Any voter who has a signature discrepancy is notified by the county clerk via US mail. That notification includes an affidavit with instructions on how they can return the signed paper affidavit with a photocopy of an acceptable form of ID to their county election office. The affidavit also contains instructions for voters to use the TXT2Cure system, if they instead prefer to use their smartphones to submit the information necessary to ensure their ballots are counted.
