All three elections will be Mail-in ballot delivery. All voters that are active eligible electors will automatically be mailed a ballot to the address that is listed in the Colorado Secretary of State’s Voter Registration System.

cannot be sent to a forwarding address. 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
