Boulder County – Boulder County Elections has added a second Vote Early Day event on Friday, October 28, to be hosted at Emergency Family Assistance Association (EFAA). The second event of the day will be hosted at Avery Brewing (see press release).

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 EFAA, 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. In addition, non-perishable food donations for EFAA will also be accepted.

What: Celebrate National Vote Early Day with Boulder County Elections

When: Friday, October 28, 12 p.m. – 3 p.m. No RSVP required.

Where: EFAA - 1575 Yarmouth Avenue in Boulder. This will be an outdoor gathering with shelter available in case of rain/snow.

“Boulder County Elections is thrilled to add a second Vote Early Day event at EFAA this year,” stated Molly Fitzpatrick, Boulder County Clerk & Recorder. “We recently launched a ‘Know Your Voting Rights’ campaign to support the diverse experiences, identities, and backgrounds of Boulder County voters. We aim to foster a voting experience that is inclusive and celebrates voters of all backgrounds, and we’re looking forward to connecting with voters who may have questions about the process – as we are here to help and support them.”

“We are honored to team up with Boulder County Elections to host our first ever Vote Early Day event,” said Julie Van Domelen, EFAA’s Executive Director. “We work to elevate participants’ voices as part of the policy making process and voting is the first step to make their voices heard. This event is meant to reaffirm their rights and facilitate their participation in the democratic process.”

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 EFAA is accessible by bus on the 204 or SKIP line from downtown Boulder and Bolt/204 lines (transfer required) from downtown Longmont.
