HOW TO VOTE IN THE ELECTION
UPDATE YOUR REGISTRATION
If you have a Colorado driver’s license or ID, you can easily update your voter registration on the Secretary of State’s website. 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.
To receive a ballot by mail, your address must be current. Check your voter registration and update your address no later than October 31 in order to receive a ballot in the mail. After October 31, you may go to any Voter Service & Polling Center (VSPC) and obtain a ballot or cast a ballot in-person.
At least one VSPC will be open in your county for the general election starting on October 24th and ending at 7PM on November 8th. Find your closest Voter Service and Polling Center for the election on our homepage.

Map and Category explanations:
Please note that the map functions best if you enter an address and choose a single category at a time. There should be a list of results below the map as well as color-coded pins on the map after you search.
- "VSPC" means the location is a full-service Voter Service and Polling Center and will show results in your county if you enter your address.
- "Drop-off" is a list of locations were you can walk or drive up to to drop off your ballot. Results are also filtered by county if you enter a search address.
- "Dropbox" is a list of standalone dropboxes where you can drop your ballot (Remember that you can drop your ballot off at any official dropbox in the state and your ballot will get back to your county).
**Reminder that all ballots must be received or dropped off by 7 pm on November 8, 2022 (Election Day) in order to be counted. It is too late to mail your ballot.
Lastly, we have done our best to verify this information such as hours and locations, but if in doubt, please check with your county clerk's or the Colorado Secretary of State's Office.
