The Elections Division wants to remind voters to sign the back of their ballot envelope as they would normally sign their name. Every ballot envelope’s signature is compared against the voter’s signature on their voter registration file. If a discrepancy is found or the signature does not match, the ballot envelope will not be opened or processed and the voter will be notified of the discrepancy by mail and/or email.
Voters can check to see if their mail ballot was received and accepted at https://bouldercounty.gov/elections/ and they can sign up to receive alerts about their mail ballot by using Boulder County Votes Ballot Track.
Residents who have not yet registered to vote can do so in person at any of Boulder County’s four Voter Service and Polling Centers up to and including Election Day or they can register online, however, they must visit a Voter Service and Polling Center in order to cast a ballot. Information about registration requirements is available online at https://bouldercounty.gov/elections/.
