Colorado’s November 3 General Election includes races for President of the United States, U.S. Senate, House of Representatives, state legislative seats and more. Voters will also decide on statewide and local ballot measures. Some important things to know:
Ballots will be mailed to all active voters beginning October 9. It’s important to keep your registration up to date so you can receive your ballot as soon as possible.
Returning your ballot by mail or drop box is the safest and easiest way to vote. If you do need to vote in person, there may be significant delays due to increased sanitation procedures and physical distancing.
