If you do not have a Colorado driver’s license or ID, you can update your voter registration by completing this form and returning it to your county clerk and recorder via mail, fax, or email. If you cannot locate your voter record online, please contact your county clerk and recorder’s office. A list of all county clerk and recorder’s offices can be found here.
