COLORADO ABSENTEE BALLOTS/EARLY VOTING


Who Can Mail-In (Absentee) Vote in Colorado?

Any registered voter may apply for an mail-in ballot; there is no need to provide a reason.
 
How Can I Acquire an Mail-In Ballot?

Requests must be made in writing and sent to your county clerk.  Applications for mail in ballots can be found at your county clerk's office or the Secretary of State's website.

Additional Information for Overseas Voters

Provisional Ballots: A voter claiming to be properly registered, but whose qualifications to vote cannot be immediately established, is entitled to vote a provisional ballot at either his/her precinct or at the office of the county clerk and recorder. This might include a voter who was inadvertently left off the registration list, a voter who requested an absentee ballot but did not return the ballot to the County Clerk, or a voter with some other technicality which resulted in that voter being denied the ability to vote. The provisional ballot would be segregated for counting at a later time after registration information is verified.
