Want to vote in the 2018 primary? Here's what you need to know!

Don't procrastinate!

With just a few to go until the Colorado primary, voters are urged to turn in their ballots as soon as possible.

There's no time left to mail your ballot: the El Paso County Clerk and Recorder's Office says anyone who still had a ballot as of June 20 needs to physically drop that ballot off at one of 15 locations to ensure their ballot is received before 7 p.m. June 26. Don't risk not getting your vote counted by mailing in your ballot at this late date!

A list of El Paso County ballot drop-off locations can be found here: epcvotes.com/returnmyballot.

Information for Pueblo County voters can be found here: pueblovotes.com.

Colorado has no registration deadline

You can register up to the election and the day of the election. You must be 18 years old on the date of the election, and you have to have lived in the state of Colorado for at least 22 days prior to the election. Online registration is here: epcvotes.com/registertovote. You can also register at a DMV location.

June 18 was the last day to submit a voter registration application and still receive a ballot in the mail.

If you've already registered and still haven't received your ballot, call 719-575-VOTE (8683).

Unaffiliated voters can only vote once

If you are unaffiliated, that means you’ve received both the Republican and Democratic ballots. You can return one, but not both. This is the first year unaffiliated voters can participate in an election and it’s causing some confusion.

As our news partner, The Gazette reported last week, nearly 600 unaffiliated voters in El Paso County have been disqualified for turning in both the Republican and Democratic ballots.

Don't forget to sign the back of your envelope!
