Boulder County, Colo. Elections in Colorado are conducted by
mail with Voter Service and Polling Centers available for those who would like
additional assistance with voting or who prefer to vote in person.
active registered voters will be automatically mailed a ballot to the address
on their voter registration record the week of Oct. 17.

The mailed ballot packets
include a detailed list of ballot
drop-off locations including many 24-hour ballot drop-boxes throughout Boulder
County. Since the printing of the Voter Instructions, we have added one new
24-hour box at Garden Acres Park in Longmont. The box is located on 18th Avenue
between Sunset and Juniper and opens on Monday when ballots are mailed out.

The mail ballot packet
also includes a list of Voter Service and Polling Centers that will be open to
the public. The first phase of Voter Service Centers opens Oct. 24. The
second phase of Voter Service Centers open the day before the election, Monday,
Nov. 7, including an additional voter service center, not listed in the
Voter Instructions, at the City of Boulder municipal building, 1777 Broadway.

Whether voting by mail or voting in-person, voters are encouraged to complete their ballot as soon as they have decided how they are going to vote. Voting
early helps reduce political campaign phone calls for the public and assists
the county in being able to process ballots throughout the election period, not
just on one night.

The Boulder County Elections Division encourages
all voters to register or check their registration to ensure that their mailing
address is correct. If you moved recently or provided an alternative address
during a past election (due to travel or other circumstances for absentee
voting), our office may not have your most current address and ballots are not
forwarded by the postal service. Voters can register or check their
registration details at

While eligible voters may register up
to and including Election Day (22-day residency required), the Elections
Division encourages everyone to register early in order to ensure that they
receive their mail ballot in a timely fashion. Voters who register or change
their registration after Oct. 31 must request a ballot in person at a Voter
Service and Polling Center.
