Voters Experiencing Homelessness

To register to vote, a physical address must be provided.

This may include a homeless shelter, homeless provider, park, campground, vacant lot, business address or any other physical location within a precinct that the voter considers their home base, to which the voter returns regularly and has an intent to remain.

If the physical location does not include a mailing address, the voter must also provide a mailing address.

A Post Office box can be used as a mailing address as long as the voter provides a valid physical Denver address as their residential address.

Voting Rights After Criminal Convictions

People convicted of misdemeanors do not lose their right to vote. Those convicted of felonies regain their right to vote once the incarceration period has been completed.

Am I Eligible?

Colorado citizens living outside the United States and all active military personnel absent from Colorado are eligible to register and vote by mail as UOCAVA voters. UOCAVA provisions also cover the spouses, civil union partners, and voting dependents of active military personnel absent from Colorado.

How do I register to vote, update my registration, and request a ballot?

If you have a Colorado driver's license or identification card, log on to www.GoVoteColorado.gov. This online voter registration portal can be used to register to vote, request a ballot, or update voter registration information. You can also indicate how you would like to receive your ballot by filling out the form provided through the online portal.

You can update your voter registration to reflect UOCAVA status through the online portal by selecting "Find my Registration" and clicking on the "Change my Address" link. You will then be given the option to update your status as a UOCAVA elector and prompted to indicate whether you would like to receive your ballot by mail, fax, or email.

If you prefer, you can submit a Federal Post Card Application ("FPCA") to your county clerk. The FCPA is available through the Federal Voting Assistance Program ("FVAP"). And serves as a universal form for both voter registration and absentee ballot requests.

When I register as an overseas voter, what address should I use?

You must provide 2 addresses:

  1. Your residential address in Colorado; and
  2. Your current mailing address.

For overseas citizens, your residential address is the last residence you maintained in Colorado before your departure. While you may no longer maintain formal ties to that residence, the address determines your proper voting jurisdiction.

Note: A post office box is NOT a residential address.
