Is your registration up to date? Is your address correct or did you add a PO Box, had a name change, want to change your party affiliation? If you are not sure about your registration information, contact our office 719-336-8011 or for assistance. Make your corrections today to ensure you are able to vote for all of the candidates and issues in your area. Verify your voter registration information, register to vote, or update your address by visiting .


UNAFFILIATED VOTERS: An unaffiliated voter may cast a ballot for any one political party. If an unaffiliated voter returns a ballot for more than one major political party, the ballot will be rejected and none of the votes will be counted.

You may choose which party’s ballot you want to get in the mail for the next primary election by selecting a party preference at or on any paper voter registration form. If you would rather receive a packet containing the ballots of all participating major parties, you can take no action or select this option when first registering to vote. You can also appear in person at any Voter Service and Polling Center in your county and choose the party’s ballot you want to vote.

If you have moved you may be inactive. Inactive voters will not have a ballot automatically mailed to them for the June 26, 2018 Primary Election. Ballots are not forwardable to your new residence either. The Post Office will send the ballot back to our office as undeliverable. The address would need to be corrected by the voter and then at that time a new ballot can be issued. A little planning upfront would help so that you may receive your ballot in a timely manner.
