The November election is less than a month away (November 2, 2021). Ballot information booklets were mailed out to most residents at the end of September. If you didn’t receive a paper copy, or prefer to read about the ballot measures online, the Legislative Council Staff have a digital version on their website. The Colorado Talking Book Library also makes an audio version available each year in MP3 format. Ballots will be mailed out at the end of this week (October 8th).

Go Vote Colorado. 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. Voters may register through Election Day. You can register online through October 24th. If you miss the deadline you can register in-person at a county polling center through Election Day. Information about polling locations can be found through county election offices.
If you want to check on your registration status, visit the Colorado Secretary State’s “Find my Voter Registration” site. Once your record is pulled up, you can check on the status of your ballot, find information about in-person voting locations, and edit or change your Party affiliation.
Information about voting and elections can be found in our library and by searching “voting” in our library catalog.
