Voter Registration
 If you are new to Colorado or need to change your address, go to www.govotecolorado.gov  to register or update your voter registration information.

Eligible individuals can register to vote through Election Day in Colorado, but please note that how you register to vote matters.

If you register by mail or online through www.govotecolorado.gov at least eight days before the election, the Adams County Clerk and Recorder will automatically mail you a ballot.

If you register seven days or less before the election, you must visit one of the Voter Service & Polling Centers to get a ballot

If you register through a voter registration drive, your application must be submitted no later than 22 days before the election.

Voter Service & Polling Centers
Check the Adams County Election Office’s website to get current information for Voter Service & Polling Center locations and hours. These centers provide voters with the following services:

  • Register to vote
  • Update your voter registration
  • Request a new or replacement ballot
  • Drop off your voted mail ballot
  • Vote on an ADA-accessible ballot marking device

Track Your Ballot

Voters can track the status of their mail ballot. This includes from the time the Adams County Clerk and Recorder mails the outgoing ballot packet to when their voted ballot is received and accepted for counting. Notifications can be sent by phone, email, or text. Voters who have an email address on file will be automatically enrolled in the ballot tracking program. If you did not receive an auto-enrollment notification, you can sign up at http://colorado.ballottrax.net.

Living Situation Does Not Affect the Right to Vote
In Colorado, every eligible person has the right to vote. Individuals who do not have a fixed permanent address, or who cannot afford regular or adequate shelter, do not lose that right. People experiencing homelessness can register to vote by using a “home base” address.

Additional information for voters with disabilities or other circumstances (overseas and military voters, students living on campus, people with convictions, etc.) is available on the Secretary of State’s website.
