This fall's November 8 General Election will feature federal, state, and local level content. Here are some key details and dates to get you ready to vote in this year's General Election:
- Voting: All active, registered voters will automatically be mailed a ballot, but Vote Centers will also operate for those who need or want to vote in person, to vote using accessible voting equipment, to get a replacement ballot, or to register or update their voter registration in person.
- Voter Registration: If you are not sure if you are registered or have moved in the last year, check your voter registration at www.GoVoteColorado.gov. Colorado does not have a registration deadline (you can register and vote on the same day), but early registration is encouraged in order to send your mail ballot in a timely fashion.
- Know Your Voting Rights: Please see the Boulder County website or contact Boulder County if you have any doubt about your ability to register or vote. We are here to help and support you. Additionally, language assistance is available in multiple languages, and there is a Spanish-language on their website.
- Ballot Content: Do your research early and be ready to vote! Content found at www.BoulderCountyVotes.org.
- Election Security: Colorado is often held up as one of the best election models in the country due to how we balance voter accessibility with strong security protocols. To learn more, see our Election Security Community Briefing at www.BoCo.org/ElectionSecurityReport.
- Election Alert Hotline: The 2020 General Election saw unprecedented levels of mis- and disinformation. National and state election experts expect that trend to continue. Please be aware and always seek out or check information against official and trusted sources of election information - such as the Boulder County website/office or the Colorado Secretary of State's office (www.GoVoteColorado.gov) - before sharing or posting with friends or family. Additionally, Boulder County has set up a dedicated email and hotline to report any potential mis- or disinformation claims and/or voting concerns: ElectionAlert@bouldercounty.org or 720-729-7667 (leave a message with details, include a screenshot if possible, and a staff member will follow up).
