“Boulder County Elections is dedicated to facilitating a positive and accessible voting experience for all residents,” said Molly Fitzpatrick, Boulder County Clerk & Recorder. “We know there are those in our community who have historically been excluded or face barriers when voting. Our goal of partnering with the Center for People With Disabilities to host this voting event is to create a comfortable space for anyone with any disability to know they are welcome and that we support their right to vote.”

"The Center for People With Disabilities’ mission is to provide resources, information, and advocacy to assist people with disabilities in overcoming barriers to independent living,” stated Craig Towler, CPWD’s Community Organizer. “Voting is one of our core civic duties and people with disabilities should not be left out of the process. This collaboration is the result of hard work, overcoming logistical challenges, and years of planning, coming together to fulfill a need within our community with the shared goal of creating a more equitable and comfortable voting experience for all community members.”

To vote in the June 25 Statewide Primary Election, a voter must be registered as a Democrat, Republican, or Unaffiliated voter. Voters may check their registration in advance at GoVoteColorado.gov or simply show up with an ID. Colorado does not have a registration deadline. New voters can register up to and including Election Day. To access in person voting services, residents must bring an ID. A list of ID options is available at BoCo.org/VotingID.

The accessible voting equipment used during this voting event, and at all vote centers, allows community members with low vision, blindness, and other physical disabilities to cast their ballot more easily. To help explain the voting process to people who are hard of hearing or deaf, we will also have an ASL interpreter on site for this June 18 event.

In addition to its Boulder office, CPWD also has a Longmont location in Boulder County. If you are a community member who frequents the Longmont facility and/or identifies with having a disability and need assistance with getting to the Boulder location to vote, CPWD is offering transportation on the day of the event. Community members may reach out to request a ride by emailing craig@cpwd.org or calling (720) 213-6293.

Boulder County wants to ensure that everyone has equal access to our programs, activities, and services. To request an Americans with Disability Act (ADA) accommodation beyond ASL interpretation, please email ADA@bouldercounty.gov or call 303-441-1386. Submit your request as early as possible, and no later than two business days before the event. Access to assistance in other languages will be available via a phone hotline at the event.
