Ready to vote? Here's what you need to do

Registered voters in Douglas County can expect ballots by mid-October

Posted

Ballots for the Nov. 5 election will soon be mailed out. Douglas County residents who plan to vote need to make sure they're registered and ready.

Registered voters in Douglas County can expect their ballots to arrive in the mail by mid-October. Residents who have not received a ballot by then are asked to call the Douglas County elections staff at 303-660-7444 or stop by a voter service and polling center for help.

Once ballots are complete, voters may drop them off at a ballot dropoff site starting Oct. 15, or mail them back. Douglas County has 11 ballot dropoff sites, 10 of which are open 24 hours. Those who wish to vote in person can stop by one of the voter service and polling centers. These centers are open beginning Oct. 28.

Ballots must be received by 7 p.m. Election Day. Voters who are in line at a designated dropoff site or polling center will be allowed to turn in their ballots. However, a postmark of Nov. 5 is not valid as the received date, so mail ballots early to ensure they are received by Election Day.

To receive a ballot, residents must be registered to vote. In addition, those who have moved since they last voted should check their address since ballots are mailed to the address on file. Residents are able to register to vote, check voter registration status, update their mailing address or affiliate with a party at DouglasVotes.com.

Voters who have questions can call or stop by the Douglas County Elections Office, 125 Stephanie Place, Castle Rock, any weekday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Douglas County Voter Service and Polling Centers also will be open to provide assistance starting Oct. 28. Polling centers will be equiped to help residents register to vote, update their voter registration, replace a ballot, vote in person, drop off a ballot and used an ADA accessible voting machine.

In addition to being open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day, these centers will be open Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., through Nov. 4. Saturday hours are offered Nov. 3, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
