Attention Boulder County Voter:

It is election season again with the Primary Election just over a month away.

This is a great time for everyone to check their voter registration and make sure it is up-to-date – especially if you have moved in the last year or have not voted in a while.

Check Voter Registration Now

This year, the Democratic and Republican parties are holding primaries. All active voters registered with these parties will receive a ballot in the mail.

If you are an unaffiliated voter, you will not automatically receive a ballot in the mail, but can affiliate with a party participating in the primary election up to and including Election Day in order to vote.

Please review the important dates and helpful questions/answers below and remember, we promise to email you very infrequently!

New to Colorado?

In case you missed it, Colorado is an all mail ballot state – meaning we send you a mail ballot for every election in which you are eligible. But, if you would like to vote in person, just visit a Voter Service and Polling Center instead. A list of locations will be provided to you in your mail ballot packet during every election. Welcome to the state.
