Don't waste your power!

“I have been beaten, my skull fractured, and arrested more than forty times, so that each and every person has the right to register and vote. Friends of mine gave their lives. Do your part. Get out there and vote like you’ve never voted before.
— Rep. John Lewis (Feb 21, 1940 - Jul 17, 2020)

Q1. How do I register to vote or update my voter registration?

A1. You may register online at www.GoVoteColorado.gov, if you have a valid Colorado driver's license or state issued ID card from the Colorado Department of Revenue.

Printable voter registration forms are also available on the Secretary of State's website, the county clerk and recorder's office, and any federal post office that provides voter registration applications. You may then mail, fax, or scan and email your complete and signed form to your county clerk and recorder's office.

You can also register to vote in-person. Registering to vote in-person may be done at a physical office, which includes:

  • A Colorado Department of Motor Vehicle office when you apply for a driver's license, or when updating your driver's license information;
  • Offices that provide public assistance, including offices that provide state funded programs primarily engaged in providing services to person with disabilities;
  • Recruitment offices of the armed forces of the United States;
  • Any federal, state, or local government office or any nongovernment office that chooses to provide voter registration service or applications; or
  • A voter service and polling center.

You can also register to vote in-person through a voter registration drive.

If you are already a registered voter in Colorado you may confirm your registration by visiting www.GoVoteColorado.gov. Once your registration is verified, you may update your address and party affiliation as well.

If your voter registration is inactive, you may change your inactive status by submitting a signed request, an online voter registration application, or making an in-person request.

Q2. Will I still be registered to vote if I did not vote in the last election?

A2. Yes. If you did not vote in the last election, you are still registered and eligible to vote. You will still receive a mail ballot unless your county clerk has received information that you have moved out of state. Visit www.GoVoteColorado.gov to make sure your voter registration information is current.

Q3. What is the voter registration deadline?

A3. Voters may register through Election Day. Please note that how you register to vote will impact how you receive your ballot.

To receive your ballot by mail:

  • Register to vote or update your voter registration online at www.GoVoteColorado.gov through the 8th day before Election Day;
  • Submit an application through the mail, at a voter registration agency, or at a local driver's license examination facility through the 8th day before Election Day; or
  • Submit an application through a voter registration drive no later than 22 days before Election Day.

If you miss the above deadlines, you may register in-person at a voter service and polling center in your county through Election Day.

Q4. What is a "residence" for purposes of voter registration and voting?

A4. The term "residence" generally means the principal or primary home or place in which a person lives. A "residence" is a permanent building or part of a building and may include a house, apartment, condominium, room in a house, or mobile home.

Homeless voters can register to vote. A homeless voter may use any address within a specific county that he/she regularly returns to and has the intent to remain. This may include a homeless shelter, a homeless service provider, a park, a campground, a vacant lot, a business address, or any other physical location.

You must have a residence to register to vote. Once you establish a residence, it exists until you establish a new residence.

Note: you may not have more than one residence.

Q5. Can I vote in Colorado if I have moved away or moved to Colorado because I am in the military or a student?

A5. For the purposes of registering to vote and voting, no person may gain residence because of their presence in Colorado. Likewise, persons may not lose residence because of their absence while in military service or while a student at any institution of higher education.

Q6. I am planning to attend a college or university out-of-state, should I wait to register there? May I remain registered in Colorado?

A6. This is the student's decision. College students that are residents of Colorado may keep their registration in their hometown and vote by mail.

Alternatively, if the student attends a college or university out-of-state and wishes to register to vote there, they should check that state's voter registration rules. Should the student change their voter registration to a different state, they are no longer eligible to vote in Colorado.

Q7. If a person no longer lives in Colorado, is it legal for that person to use my address for their voter registration?

A7. Maybe. Sometimes, the old address is the only address that a person can use for voter registration purposes. For example, a member of the armed services stationed out-of-state or a student attending school abroad who formerly resided at your address may use that address for voter registration and voting purposes.

Q8. What is Automatic Voter Registration?

A8. When an individual interacts with certain agencies, such as the DMV, they usually will provide information such as name, address, date of birth, etc. This information is then used to register that individual to vote in Colorado.

The elector’s county clerk will verify if they have a complete record to register the individual to vote. If the elector’s record is complete, the county clerk will send a notice to the elector that they are registered to vote. The elector can return the notice to either decline to be registered or to affiliate with a party. If the elector does not decline to be registered within 20 days after the notice is mailed and the form is not returned as undeliverable, the elector is then registered to vote.

GoVoteColorado.gov

The State of Colorado provides one-stop voter registration, with lots of other voter information at your fingertips.

This online Colorado resource is “GoVoteColorado.gov” (formerly GoVoteColorado.com*). Colorado’s Secretary of State, Jena Griswold, announced late in 2019, that the “.gov” domain, which only government agencies may use, means that information is coming directly from the Secretary of State’s office and can be trusted.  This powerful voter tool demonstrates the Secretary’s commitment to making sure Colorado voters can access election-related resources online at a trusted and secure location.

As stated by Secretary Griswold: “Now more than ever, voters deserve to be confident that they have access to secure and accurate election information. Not only is this resource helping Coloradans register to vote and access important information, voters can be assured that this resource is trustworthy and secure.”

Colorado residents who are qualified** to vote in the State can use this website to access and perform crucial tasks, such as:

  • Register to vote (if a new registration a Colorado driver’s license or ID is required)
  • Update their voter registration (e.g., change address)
  • Change their party affiliation (and choose their ballot type for primary-type election)
  • Track their ballot status (e.g., to confirm acceptance)
  • Find their polling location
  • Determine the many voting districts connected with their residence address

If the website does not allow you to register online, it has a link to the voter registration "Form 100" that can be submitted to your County Clerk by mail, in person, or via scanning and email. (See “Helpful Links”)

The new web address comes in tandem with the #TrustedInfo2020 initiative launched by the National Association of Secretaries of State in 2019, reminding voters to rely on their local Election Officials for the most accurate election information.

Helpful Links:

*The previous “.com” domain address will now automatically direct visitors to the new site.

**Eligibility to Vote in Colorado:

  • Citizen of the United States
  • Registered to vote at your current Colorado address
  • Be at least age 18 no later than the date of the General Election

If you have a past criminal record, you should be able to vote if:

  • You are on parole/federal supervised release
  • You have a criminal conviction and have served your sentence
  • You are a pretrial detainee in jail or awaiting trial
  • You are on probation for either a misdemeanor or felony
  • You are currently serving a sentence in jail for a misdemeanor only
  • You are no longer serving a term of imprisonment due to a felony conviction
  • You were sentenced by a court to a halfway house
