Boulder County Elections is requesting that anyone who sees a concerning incident regarding elections misinformation, intimidation, or voting issues to get in touch with our office and law enforcement as soon as possible. If you believe there is an immediate danger, please call 911.
Our contact information to report any misinformation/intimidation/voting issue is: SafeElections@bouldercounty.org. (Designated phone hotline added closer to election period).
Additionally, we also ask for your help that if if you see a social media post with something concerning, please get in touch with our office (and law enforcement). Collect as many details as you can (e.g., screenshots, date/time/location – social media channel/web page – etc.) and provide your name and phone number when you contact us. We must collect the necessary information in order to follow up on reports. We also report any verified information or misinformation to the Colorado Secretary of State’s office for potential further investigation.
Misinformation and unsubstantiated claims about voting can cause undue panic. We need the community’s help in this effort.
Both local county clerks and the Colorado Secretary of State’s office take any interference with voting very seriously. For more information, please see the Secretary of State’s press release on the launch of their Misinformation Initiative.
