Find your polling place: https://www.sos.state.co.us/Voter/secuVoterSearch.do
Early voting in Colorado begins on October 22, 2012, extends through November 2, 2012, and is available during regular business hours. Eligible voters who appear inperson at the early voters’ polling place during this time may cast their ballots the same way they’d cast any ballot in a precinct polling place on Election Day.
Vote by Mail
Colorado also has no excuse mail-in (absentee) voting. If you prefer not to go to the polls on Election Day, you may apply to vote by mail by submitting a completed Mailin Ballot Application to your local county clerk. If you have a Colorado State driver's license or ID card issued by the Department of Revenue, you may update your voter registration and request a mail-in ballot online at www.govotecolorado.com. Mail-in ballots will begin being mailed on October 15, 2012, after which ballots will be mailed within 72 hours after the receipt of a mail-in ballot application. Mail-in ballots count just like any other ballot as long as they are received by your county clerk no later than 7:00 p.m. on Election Day. Electors are encouraged to drop off ballots at designated drop-off sites or mail their ballots in time to be received by the county clerk before the polls close. Postmarks do not count. The last day to apply for a mailin
ballot for the General Election if mailed is October 30, 2012.
For the latest information on where, when and how to vote early or absentee contact County Election Office.
