UNAFFILIATED VOTERS: Recent changes in Colorado law now allow unaffiliated voters to vote in a primary election.

Here is how it works:

  1. You will receive two ballots in your packet, one Democratic ballot and one Republican ballot.
  2. Choose ONLY ONE of these ballots and fill it out. Discard the ballot you won’t use.
  3. Sign your return envelope and return your ONE voted ballot in the return envelope.

Sending in two voted ballots will disqualify all of your votes.  Your vote in this election will not affiliate you with a political party.

All Colorado voters may now vote at Voter Service and Polling Centers within their county.
