Register to vote in the 2016 election
Election Day 2016 is fast approaching, and Garfield County is working hard to ensure that residents are registered to vote and have their personal information, such as a current address, correct. Check online at the Colorado Secretary of State website.
Election Day this year is Tuesday, Nov. 8, and residents can register to vote online, through the mail, or in person, as late as on Election Day at a voter service and polling center (VSPC). Voters who plan to register online or through the mail must fill out a state voter registration form and submit it at least eight days before Election Day.
Visit GoVoteColorado.com to register to vote, make a name change, update voter information, or learn about the process of voting from overseas if out of the country at the time of the election. Voters will need a Colorado driver’s license or state-issued identification card number to register online.
College students must remember to update their addresses to receive a mail-in ballot if studying away from home or out of state. This also applies to Colorado residents who plan on being away from home on vacation during election season. Post offices will not forward mail-in ballots.
VSPCs act as an all-in-one polling center. Residents can register to vote, turn in ballots, update addresses, request a replacement ballot, and vote unaided on electronic voting machines.
Register to vote on your smartphone
Coloradans can now register to vote on their smartphone through the Secretary of State's website by texting either "Colorado" or "CO" to 2Vote (28683). This feature will respond with a link to the voter registration and election information website, where residents can register or check their information to ensure that it's current and accurate.
