Step 1: Check Your Registration

Step 2: Research Your Ballot

Our interactive sample ballot will be available approximately 45 days before each election.

Step 3: Make a Plan

You have two options to vote: 

At home 

We will automatically send you a ballot in the mail beginning 22 days before each election. You may vote and return your ballot in the mail or at one of our 24-hour ballot drop-boxes located across the city. If you make a mistake or need a new ballot, you can use our curbside ballot pick-up service to get a new one.

Accessible ballots will be available upon request.

Ballots must be received by the Denver Elections Division by 7 p.m. on Election Day, the last day to vote. If you choose to return your ballot by mail, be sure to mail it no later than 8 days before Election Day.

In person

You can vote at any one of the Voter Service and Polling Centers (VSPCs) located throughout Denver. VSPCs will open for early voting at least 15 days before each election. Information about in-person vote centers and hours will be available approximately 60 days before each election. We recommend that you make a plan to vote early to avoid a wait on Election Day, or the last day to vote.
