Colorado makes voting easy in our state and we have a couple of resources to help you drop off your ballot or get yourself to the polls before 7 p.m. MT on Election Day. If you are someone who waits until the last minute, you are able to register and cast your vote up until the polls close. But don't wait until Nov. 3 because there's A LOT on the ballot this year in addition to the presidential election.
The first step to voting is making sure you are registered. Check your voter registration on Headcount. You can register to vote online with a Colorado driver's license or ID card.
Now it is time to research. The Colorado Voter's Guide to the 2020 Election outlines each candidate, amendment, and proposition on the ballot. Additionally, CPR News' overall 2020 Elections section provides the latest coverage and any breaking news that may arise.
If you're mailing off your ballot, you have until Oct. 26 to mail it back to your county clerk's office. After that date, you should drop off your ballot in a secure dropbox or vote center. You can find a list of polling locations and official dropboxes on the Secretary of State's Office's website.
If you've mailed off your ballot, you can track it online.

Make your voice heard and vote! I took a mailbox selfie to show you that I voted by mail. There's different ways to submit your ballot so you should choose what is right for you!
