Boulder County, Colo. – Boulder County offers voters many ways to return their mail ballot or vote in-person between now and on Election Day. For location and hour information for the below items, please visit www.BoulderCountyVotes.org or voters can check their mail ballot packet Voter Instructions.
Returning a Mail Ballot. Voters returning a mail ballot can drop it off at a 24-hour mail ballot drop box (anytime), drive-by drop-off location (Friday until 6 p.m.; Saturday & Monday 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Tuesday 7 a.m. – 7 p.m.), or at any Voter Service and Polling Center.
Voting In-Person, Registering to vote & voting, and Replacement Ballots.
Boulder County voters can visit a Voter Service and Polling Center to:
- Drop off a ballot
- Cast a ballot in person
- Request a replacement ballot
- Register to vote or update voter registration information
- Vote using equipment and facilities for persons with disabilities
There are seven Voter Service Centers open on Saturday from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. and an additional nine centers opening on Monday for a total of 16 centers operating on Monday 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Tuesday, Election Day, 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. This includes a Voter Service Center at the City of Boulder Municipal Building at 1777 Broadway that was added after the Voter Instructions were printed.
Key Reminders for Voters:
- Too late to mail ballots. Please drop it off at any of our many drop-off locations. All ballots must be received by 7 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, November 8. Postmarks do not count.
- Vote early & avoid lines. Whether going to vote in-person or using a drive-by ballot drop-off location, voters should avoid the lines and traffic (we get car back-ups at our drive up locations on Election Day) and vote this weekend if at all possible.
- Sign your ballot envelope. Voters should make sure to sign their name as they normally would on their return ballot envelope. All signatures are verified.
- Bring ID. Voters must bring a current and valid ID to vote in-person or for any other Voter Service Center transactions. The most common forms of ID used in Boulder County are: Colorado Driver’s License or Colorado state-issued ID, University of Colorado student ID (or other institute of higher education in Colorado with photo), or a U.S. Passport. For a complete list of ID options, visit the Secretary of State’s website: http://www.sos.state.co.us/pubs/elections/vote/acceptableFormsOfID.html or contact our office: 303.413.7766.
- Registering to Vote. Voters can save time at a Voter Service Center by registering to vote online at home at www.GoVoteColorado.com and then go in and request a ballot at a Voter Service Center.
- Write-in Candidates. If a voter wants to vote for a write-in candidate, the candidate must be an official certified write-in candidate or their vote will not be counted. A list of certified write-in candidates is included in our compiled ballot content on our website.
- Track your mail ballot after drop-off. After a voter drops off their mail ballot, they can visit our website to see when it was processed. It takes about 24-hours (and sometimes a bit longer) to process mail ballots after we receive them.
