Boulder County mailing ballots to voters today, Oct. 15
Boulder County, Colo. – The Boulder County Clerk & Recorder’s Office is mailing ballots today to active, registered voters for the 2013 Coordinated Election.
So far, 199,968 Boulder County voters are set to receive mail ballots for the Tuesday, Nov. 5, election. A ballot will be sent to each active, registered voter. Each mail ballot packet includes a list of Voter Service and Polling Centers and ballot drop-off points that will open between now and Election Day. After returning their ballot, voters can check www.BoulderCountyVotes.org to make sure it was received.
Boulder County voters have the choice of voting by mail ballot, or at a Voter Service and Polling Center up to and including Election Day. They can visit www.BoulderCountyVotes.org to check their registration, view ballot content, request a replacement ballot if their ballot is lost or damaged, or find more information about the election.
Voters who aren’t registered can still register to vote until 7 p.m. on Election Day under a new state law passed earlier this year. Visit www.GoVoteColorado.com with a Colorado ID or driver’s license to register online no later than Monday, Oct. 28. Or visit a Voter Service and Polling Center by 7 p.m. on Election Day to register and get a ballot.
If you have been displaced by recent flooding and have not been receiving your mail at your registered address, you might not automatically receive a ballot because ballots are not forwardable mail. However, you are still eligible to vote. Please visit www.GoVoteColorado.com to confirm or update your mailing address by Oct. 28 to receive a mail ballot, or visit a Voter Service and Polling Center through 7 p.m. on Election Day to update your voter information and obtain a ballot.
*Note: The Elections Division mailed 2,741 ballots to voters displaced by flooding in Jamestown and Lyons on Oct. 9. The measure should help ensure elections staff can identify and reach out to voters who have changed their address and must update their registration before receiving a mail ballot.
Key Dates for the 2013 Coordinated Election:
· Oct. 15: Ballots will be sent to all active, registered voters.
· Monday, Oct. 28: Last day to register to vote online for the coordinated election. New this year, voters may register in person at a Voter Service and Polling Center up to and including Election Day.
· Tuesday, Nov. 5: Election Day. All ballots must be in the hands of the Boulder County Clerk & Recorder’s Office by 7 p.m.
