It’s Election Day! If you haven’t voted or returned your ballot yet, here’s what you need to know.

Voters are tasked with deciding who will be Colorado’s next governor after Gov. John Hickenlooper held the office for eight years. In addition, several ballot questions could have deep impacts on the state’s budget, infrastructure and regulations. The two-sheet ballot also contains races for the U.S. House of Representatives, the state legislature, state offices, and county offices. 

You can view a sample ballot at govotecolorado.com. Click on “Find my registration.” 

If you’re not yet registered to vote, didn’t receive a ballot in the mail, need a replacement ballot, or would like to vote in person, head to a Voter Service and Polling Center. There’s at least one in every county. Tap the link below or contact your county clerk and recorder’s office to find one near you. 

You can register to vote in person until 7 p.m. tonight. 

Once you’ve completed your ballot, deposit it in a ballot drop box before 7 p.m. tonight.

Ballot drop boxes are located across southern Colorado. You don’t need a stamp to return your ballot in a drop box. Many of them are drive-up. Tap the link below or contact your county clerk and recorder’s office to find one near you.
