Be Ready for Election Day

What’s the easiest way to register to vote?

If you have a Colorado State driver's license or ID card issued by the Department of Revenue you may register to vote online. Do this by October 31st and the county Clerk will mail you a ballot.

How do I confirm if I am already a registered voter in Colorado and verify my correct address?

Confirm your registration at here. Once your registration is verified, you can use your driver’s license number to update your address and party affiliation online as well.

When is the last day to register to vote this year?

Colorado law allows you to register to vote through Election Day. But how you register to vote matters: 

  • If you register after October 31st, you must visit one of the Voter Service and Polling Centers in your county to get a ballot.
  • If you register to vote through a voter registration drive, your application must be submitted no later than 22 days before election day.
  • You may register to vote by appearing in-person at a voter service and polling center through Election Day

The Colorado PACE Committee will announce endorsements soon! Remember it is our State Legislature that makes laws regarding LSW and LCSW licenses, funding for local mental health, programs for the homeless and for our schools. These laws greatly impact you as a social worker and the clients you serve - vote down ticket for your state representative so laws that support social work values get passed.
