The 2020 election season has arrived, and while national races are getting the majority of attention it’s important to remember that we have numerous significant local issues to vote on this year. The 2020 statewide ballot includes four amendments and seven propositions. The pros and cons for each are explored in the state’s official ballot analysis handbook, known as the “Blue Book.” 2020 Blue Books are being mailed to registered voters, but if you prefer a digital version, they can be viewed online from the State Publications Library in both English and Spanish. Fiscal impact statements for each statewide ballot measure are also available online.
If you need to register to vote or are not sure if you are registered, head over to the Colorado Secretary of State’s Elections and Voting page. Here you can access your voter registration record, register to vote, and find important dates and information on this year’s election cycle.
This year, COVID-19 has affected practically everything in our lives, including the election. In response, the Colorado Secretary of State’s Elections Division has created a new guidebook, Health and Safety Guidance for the November 3, 2020 General Elections. The guide provides information for county clerks and other election officials regarding the challenges of running an election during the pandemic.
