The in-person tours then offer people interested in local elections the opportunity to see how ballots are processed, understand how signatures are verified on mail ballots, and learn about how ballot adjudication works, among other ballot processing and election security procedures and safeguards. Visitors will be able to observe workers processing ballots for the Tuesday, June 28 Primary Election. Students are strongly encouraged to attend to learn more about the elections process. Tours take about 30 minutes with questions.
Please note that for the security of our staff and election judges, we will ask all tour attendees to leave personal belongings in the car, will require attendees to sign in, and will have security present. As of today, masks are required in Boulder County buildings – this is subject to change at any time.
