Boulder County Elections and Avery Brewing Company to celebrate Vote Early Day on October 28
Boulder County – Boulder County Elections and Avery Brewing Company are teaming up to host a Vote Early Day event on Friday, October 28. Vote Early Day is a nationwide movement of over 2700 election administrators, nonprofits, and businesses that aims to ensure that Americans know their options for voting early so that last-minute problems do not stop them from casting their ballot. The new civic holiday was first celebrated in 2020 and is now an annual event.
At this event, voters can drop off their ballots in the 24-hour Ballot Box at Avery Brewing, pick up an “I Voted” sticker, sign up to register to vote (last day to mail ballots is Monday, October 31), ask election-related questions of staff, and pick up free election swag (while supplies last). Clerk and Recorder Molly Fitzpatrick and members of the elections staff will be present.
What: Celebrate National Vote Early Day with Boulder County Elections
When: Friday, October 28, 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. No RSVP required.
Where: 4910 Nautilus Court in Gunbarrel. Weather permitting, this will be an outdoor gathering
“We are excited to celebrate another Vote Early Day in Boulder County, and we are grateful to Avery Brewing for hosting us,” stated Molly Fitzpatrick, Boulder County Clerk & Recorder. “Our elections staff looks forward to this event every year because it’s a great opportunity to interact face-to-face with Boulder County voters, to have some meaningful conversations about the voting process, and to build trust between our office and voters. People who come to drop off their mail ballot also enjoy the sense of voting being at a community event.”
“It is a great pleasure for us to host a Vote Early Day on a yearly basis, as well as to have a 24-hour mail ballot drop box at our location,” said Adam Avery, founder of Avery Brewing Company. “Building community is a core aspect of our business and we are honored to provide this opportunity for people to engage with the voting process in a relaxed environment.”
Also, new this year, RTD announced Vote Early Day as a zero-fare day to encourage voter participation in the upcoming general election. See their press release for details and note that Avery Brewing is accessible by bus on the 205 line from Boulder and Bolt (with a walk) from Longmont.
