Boulder County, Colo. – The
Boulder County Elections Division wants to remind voters that the Primary
Election is on Tuesday, June 26. Elections in Colorado are conducted by mail ballot with
Voter Service and Polling Centers also available for those who would like to
use accessible voting equipment or for those who prefer to vote in person.
For voters who need a replacement
mail ballot, Monday, June 18 is the last day to request a replacement mail
ballot be sent to them. Additionally, for first time voters, Monday is also the
deadline to register and be mailed a ballot. After Monday, replacement mail
ballots can be requested in-person at a Voter Service Centers. Eligible voters may
also register to vote at any time, online or in-person, but must visit a Voter
Service Center after Monday to request a ballot.
If a voter is mailing a ballot, the
Elections Division recommends that voters mail their ballot no later than
Tuesday, June 19. Otherwise, we recommend a voter drop-off their mail ballot at
any one our many 24-hour ballot drop boxes. Ballots must be received by 7 p.m. Tuesday, June
26 to be counted. Postmarks do not count.
The Elections Division also
wants to remind unaffiliated voters to vote and return only one party ballot,
otherwise none of their votes will be counted. Additionally, please remember to
avoid swapping ballot envelopes with a spouse or household member. If an
affiliated voter returns an envelope that contains a ballot that they are not
eligible to vote, the ballot will not be counted.
