Local Election Voting Resource

With the election in full-force and November 3 right around the corner, here’s what you need to know about casting your ballot this year.

Ways to Vote

In Colorado, Election Day (Nov. 3) is more of a deadline. You have until then, at 7 p.m., to vote.

You can do so in-person, by mailing in your ballot, or by dropping your mailed ballot off directly to a secure ballot box.

To track that your ballot has been accepted, you can sign up for Ballottrax on the Secretary of State's website. Track your ballot here.

Voter Registration

If you are unsure of your registration status, have moved recently, or haven’t received your ballot (they were sent out October 9), head to GoVoteColorado.com to register.

Colorado has same-day registration; voters can register to vote up until November 3, and can do it at the polls.

Getting Your Ballot

Every registered voter in Colorado (with a valid mailing address) receives a ballot in the mail. You should have your ballot by now; if you have not received a ballot, please contact the County Clerk's office at 970-384-3700 x 1770 and the election staff will determine where or if a ballot was mailed. Changes made online at govotecolorado.gov will update almost immediately and a request for a ballot to be mailed will be generated.

If you misplaced or miss-marked your ballot, you can call the Garfield County Clerk's office at 970-384-3700 x 1770 to request that a replacement ballot be mailed to you.

Voters have until October 26 to request a mail-in ballot.

If voting by mail, the ballot has to be received by 7 p.m. on November 3; please be sure to fill out early to allow the Post Office plenty of time to deliver it before the deadline.
