Unaffiliated voters are eligible to vote in primary elections. The upcoming primary election will be conducted on June 30, 2020.
If you are registered to vote as unaffiliated, you will receive a mail ballot packet with both a Democratic Party ballot and a Republican Party ballot. You may vote only one ballot. Complete instructions will be provided with your mail ballot packet.
As an alternative, you may choose a participating political party preference, by mail or online, no later than June 1, 2020. After June 1, 2020 all party preferences may be made in person only at a Voter Service and Polling Center beginning June 8, 2020.
Note: Choosing a party preference does not affiliate you with that party. Your status remains unaffiliated.
Follow the simple steps listed below to participate in the 2020 primary elections.
Step 1: Choose a Party Preference
If you are an unaffiliated voter, you may choose a participating party preference at www.GoVoteColorado.gov no later than June 1, 2020. After June 1, 2020 all party preferences may be made in person at a Voter Service and Polling Center beginning June 8, 2020.
Please note that choosing a party preference will not change your unaffiliated status. It just lets us know which ballot to issue to you for this primary election.
Your party preference is removed from your voter registration record after each primary election. For example, after one primary election, you will need to choose your party preference for the next primary election.
You are not required to select a party preference. If you do not select a party preference by the statutory deadline for each primary, your mail ballot packet will have a Democratic Party and Republican Party ballots.
Step 2: Vote and Return One Ballot
If you did not choose a party preference, be sure to vote and return only one party’s ballot. Please destroy and discard the ballot you choose not to vote. Please note that if you vote and return both ballots, neither will be counted.
If you choose a party preference, you will receive that party’s ballot in the mail. Vote the ballot and return.
Your ballot must be received by the Clerk and Recorder’s Office by 7:00 p.m. on Election Day. Return in one of the secure 24-hour ballot drop boxes, by mail or in person. Postmarks do not count.
