Eligible voters can still register, drop ballots in drop boxes ahead of Nov. 7 election
The Colorado Secretary of State’s Office on Wednesday issued the following press release containing critical voting information:
With the 2023 Coordinated Election on November 7, the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office is reminding Coloradans of important voter information.
“Election Day is just around the corner, and there is still time for eligible Coloradans to register to vote and cast a ballot for the Coordinated Election,” said Secretary Griswold. “Voters should remember to use a trusted source for accurate election information like your county clerk or GoVoteColorado.gov.”
County Clerks have mailed ballots to voters for the Coordinated Election. Registered voters who did not receive a ballot should contact their County Clerk or visit a voting center.
Colorado voters should return their ballots at drop box or voting center. It is too late to return a ballot by mail to ensure that it will be received by county clerks by 7 p.m. on Election Day. Coloradans can still register to vote, receive a ballot, and vote in-person at a voting center until 7 p.m. on Election Day.
Important information for Colorado voters:
- Coloradans should always use trusted sources when searching for information on elections. Information from the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office is distributed via ColoradoSOS.govor GoVoteColorado.gov. Websites ending in “.gov” are government websites.
- Voters can visit GoVoteColorado.gov and select “Contact my County Clerk” to ensure they are only visiting legitimate Colorado Clerk websites.
- All Colorado voters can sign up to track their ballot from when it is sent to when it is counted using BallotTrax.

After October 30, Coloradans can still register to vote, receive a ballot, and vote in person at a Voter Service and Polling Center (VSPC) until 7 p.m. on Election Day.
- Eligible voters who wish to mail back their voted ballot should do so by October 30 to ensure it is received by their county election official by November 7. After October 30, voters should return their ballot to a drop box or voting center.
