Voter Registration

Voting is our democratic right as U.S. citizens and the first step is to register to vote.  Learn about the criteria to be eligible to vote on Who Can Vote.  Once you have established your eligibility, register online, by form or in person.

Information on voter registration and updating your registration is available at

It is important that registered voters keep their records up to date with their current information.  All active registered voters automatically are sent a ballot in each election.  The voter may not receive their ballot if their voter record has Inaccurate or out-of-date personal information.

IS THERE A DEADLINE TO REGISTER TO VOTE?

Colorado allows you to register to vote through Election Day.

The timeframe when you register, though, may affect the method by which you can vote.

  • If you register to vote online at least 8 days before an election, you will be MAILED a ballot.
  • After the 8th day before an election, you must visit a Voter Service & Polling Center or our office to register and receive a ballot in person.
  • If you register to vote through a voter registration drive, your application must be submitted no later than 22 days before an election.

View and Update Your Voter Registration

Address Change

Your residence determines the precinct and districts to which you belong and subsequently the ballot you will vote.
