Ready to vote? Here's what you need to do in Arapahoe County

Posted

Ballots are scheduled to arrive in mailboxes by Oct. 19 to all active registered voters, and here’s how you can get squared away to have a smooth voting experience in the Nov. 6 election.

Check your registration at govotecolorado.com to make sure your residential and ballot-mailing addresses are current. Ballots will not be forwarded by post offices, even for those who recently moved and put in a change-of-address request to the post office.

The deadline to register to vote or update registration online or by mail, and receive a ballot by mail, is Oct. 29.

After that, you’ll need to visit one of the many Voter Service and Polling Centers throughout the county to register and request a ballot.

At those centers, you can drop off a mail ballot, register to vote, update registration, request a new ballot, request a replacement mail ballot or vote on an accessible electronic tablet.

To vote by mail

You can return ballots by mail with paid postage or take it to any Ballot Drop-Off Location or Voter Service and Polling Center. Ballots must be received by 7 p.m. Nov. 6, which means you’ll need to mail it back by Oct. 30 to ensure it arrives on time. Postmarks do not count.

You can see the status of your mail ballot online with the Arapahoe County Ballot Track system, online at arapahoevotes.com. You can also sign up for free text, email or phone messages when your ballot is mailed to you and received by Arapahoe County for processing in any election.

If you’re voting in Colorado for the first time and didn’t provide ID when you registered to vote, you’ll need to provide a photocopy of your ID in the official return envelope.

The instructions that come with your ballot will indicate in red on the front if you are required to provide a photocopy. Check out the Secretary of State’s Office’s guidelines at tinyurl.com/y8b93bs5 for acceptable forms of ID.

If you make a mistake, damage or lose your ballot, you may request a replacement ballot by calling 303-795-4511 by Oct. 29, or by visiting a Voter Service and Polling Center between Oct. 22 and Nov. 6.

To vote in person

You’ll need to show a valid ID at a Voter Service and Polling Center. Check out the Secretary of State’s Office’s guidelines at tinyurl.com/y8b93bs5 for acceptable forms of ID.

Visit a Voter Service and Polling Center between Oct. 22 and Nov. 6. to vote in person — there are no assigned polling locations. Twelve locations will open Oct. 22, and 16 more will open Nov. 3. Check hours and dates at arapahoevotes.com.

For questions, call the county Elections Division at 303-795-4511.
