It’s on: Colorado ballots are headed to voters’ mailboxes

Friday is the day Colorado candidates and voters have been waiting for: the day election officials can begin mailing ballots.

Once received, Denver officials urge voters not to delay in filling out and returning their ballots because they’re lengthy. The city expects to send out at least 510,000, said Alton Dillard, spokesperson for the City and County Clerk’s Office.

Not registered yet? No worries. Colorado residents can continue to register up to and on Election Day, and can request a ballot by mail until Oct. 26.

Once complete, ballots can be returned through drop boxes or the U.S. Postal Service, though concerns have been raised about mail delivery times and reliability.

Drop boxes and polling centers must be open by Oct. 19, though some counties might open theirs earlier.

Ballots must be received by election officials by 7 p.m. on Election Day.
