Election Day is just a week away and officials this week reminded voters that starting today they should plan to drop off their ballots or return them in person rather than by mail.
Monday also was the last day voters could register and request a ballot or replacement ballot be mailed to them, according to the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office. Voters can still register or request a ballot and vote in person at voter service and polling centers. To find the nearest drop box or voter service and polling center, voters can use a search tool located on the Colorado Secretary of State’s website. There are 20 such centers in Boulder County and 14 in Weld County.
For those wishing to vote in-person, the secretary of state has issued election rules and guidance to help ensure voting in-person is as safe as possible, including personal protective equipment for poll workers and social distancing requirements, according to a news release.
Voted ballots must be received by county election officials by 7 p.m. Nov. 3.To register to vote, check your registration or for election information, visit www.GoVoteColorado.gov. The link also allows voters to sign up for BallotTrax to track their ballots from when they are sent to when they are processed.
