Register to Vote
Things You’ll Need:
- Voter registration application
- Acceptable form of identification
- Physical mailing address
- Meet the criteria to register. You can register to vote if you will be 18 by Election Day, be a resident of Colorado and a U.S. citizen and lived at your place of residency 30 days prior to the election.
- Fill out the registration form. The application is a simple one-page form. The application cannot be processed without the address where you live and verification of identity.
- Mail or deliver the application form in person to your county clerk. In order to vote in an election, the application must be postmarked or delivered in person 29 days before the election to the county clerk and recorder’s office.
- Identity must be verified before your application is complete. You may mail a copy of whichever identification you choose to use such as Colorado driver’s license or Colorado State ID card. If you do not have either of these forms of identification, you may still apply using an alternate form of identification. Call or check online to see the alternative forms of identification you may use.
- Receive your voter identification card in the mail.
- Check your voter identification card carefully for errors. Correct any errors and return it to the county clerk or county recorder office immediately if something needs to be fixed.
