Election FAQs

When is the deadline to register to vote?

You can register to vote and vote in-person at a voter service and polling center in your county anytime through 7 p.m. on Election Day (Tuesday, November 6).

How do I vote in Colorado?

All voters receive ballots in the mail. You can send your ballot by mail (be sure to affix adequate postage) or use 24-hour ballot drop boxes. Postmarks do not count; ballots must be received by 7 p.m. on Election Day (Tuesday, November 6) in order to be counted.

Do I need identification if I vote in-person?

Yes. Most voters use their Colorado driver’s license or Colorado ID. Other forms of identification accepted.

When I vote and show an ID, does the address on my ID need to match my voter registration?

If you show ID that has an address on it, the address must be in Colorado but it does not have to match your voter registration.

Can I register or vote if I don’t have an ID?

If you want to register to vote or vote on Election Day, but do not have verifiable identification, you may vote a “provisional ballot.” After Election Day, the election official will review the provisional ballot to verify your eligibility to vote. If you are eligible, your ballot will be counted.

Can I get time off from my job to vote?

Yes. By law, a voter may get time off without loss of pay if they do not have sufficient time outside of regular working hours to vote. See Colorado Revised Statutes Section 1-7-102 for details.

Will I still be able to vote if I am in line past 7 p.m. on Election Day?

Voters who are in line at their polling location by 7 p.m. are allowed to vote no matter how long it takes for each person to cast his or her ballot.
