Primary Election Day
Colorado's Primary Election Day for the 2014 Election Cycle is Tuesday, June 24, 2014. Voting is easier and more important than ever. Make sure your voice is heard!
The 2014 primary ballots have been mailed and should be arriving in your mailbox shortly. Be sure to vote and get your ballot in the mail with the correct postage or drop it off at one of the many voting locations near you. All ballots must be received by the County Clerk’s office by 7:00 PM on Tuesday, June 24, 2014.
If you have not received your ballot, make sure that you are registered to vote by checking the Colorado Secretary of State's website. You must be registered to vote by Monday, June 16, 2014, in order to receive a mail ballot. If you are not registered by June 16th you can still vote, thanks to Colorado's Same Day Registration policy. Simply go to a Voter Service & Polling Center (VSPC), register, get a ballot, and vote!
If you are not familiar with the candidates on your ballot, there are many ways to get informed. We recommend visiting their websites, many of which can be found at the Colorado Secretary of State's website under the 2014 Primary Election Official Candidate List.
Important Voting Information:
- Attach the correct postage! This varies by county and is almost invariably more than one 1st class stamp.
- Sign the affirmation on the ballot return envelope. The ballot won't be counted without your signature. If the voter forgets to sign, the county will attempt to contact the voter to "cure" the deficiency within a few days after the election.
- Only one ballot may be returned in each return envelope.
- Enclose ID if required. If a voter is voting in Colorado for the first time, the voter is required to enclose ID. There should be a notice in the ballot packet explaining this and listing what forms of ID are permissible.
- Replacement ballots are available at a VSPC. If a voter doesn't get a ballot, loses the ballot, or otherwise needs a replacement ballot, the voter may go to a VSPC.
