2020 will be a very busy election year. In 2016, Proposition 107 was approved by Colorado voters to recreate and reenact state laws for allowing Presidential Primary Elections. With this change, Colorado will hold a 2020 Presidential Primary Election.


2020 Presidential Primary will be held Tuesday, March 3, 2020, 2020 Primary will be held June 30, 2020 and 2020 General Election will be held Tuesday, November 3, 2020. All three elections will be Mail-in ballot delivery. All voters that are active eligible electors will be mailed a ballot to the address that is listed in the Colorado Secretary of State’s Voter Registration System.


It is very important that all electors have the correct physical and mailing address on file or you will not receive a ballot in the mail because a ballot cannot be sent to a forwarding address. In the last November 2019 Election, we received several undeliverable ballots back from the United States Postal Service because voter’s mailing address were incorrect. So please, as soon as possible make sure your physical and mailing address is correct in the Colorado Secretary of State’s voter registration system. If you have moved and need to update your address do so right away. The Colorado Secretary of State’s Voter Registration System can be accessed through the internet at: www.govotecolorado.gov or contact your local County Clerk & Recorder’s Office for any questions (719-336-8011).
