Welcome to the League of Women Voters of Arapahoe and Douglas Counties
Election Central 2020 pages with the information you need about the 2020 elections and registering to vote. You'll also find links to elections information on the Colorado Secretary
of State, Arapahoe County, Douglas County, Municipal, School Board, and Special District web sites.
New this year in Colorado: 17 year olds who will turn 18 by the November 3, 2020 General Election may vote in the Colorado Presidential Primary on March 3 and in the upcoming Colorado State Primary on June 30.
Now qualified Colorado teens who will turn 18 by the general election can take part in the primary elections too due to the new The Colorado Votes Act (HB 19-1278), which took effect in August, 2019.
Also, please note that in Colorado all teens 16 and older are encouraged to register to vote so that they're ready to vote as soon as eligible.
Teens 16 and older: Go to the Colorado Secretary of State's web site and click on "Register to Vote." Once registered, you will automatically receive a ballot for the next election for which you're eligible.
You'll find the Colorado Secretary of State's Election Calendar here.
All registered voters, including unaffiliated voters, will receive mail-in ballots for the June 30 Colorado State Primary starting June 8. If you still need to register, you may do so online. Or, if you are registered and did not receive a ballot, visit one of your county voter service centers. See below for the links to the Colorado Secretary of State web site and to your County Clerk and Recorder Elections web site with voter service center locations and their phone numbers.
Unaffiliated voters will receive Democratic and Republican party ballots, but may submit only one ballot. Submitting both will result in both being disqualified. The ballot must be returned by 7:00 p.m. on June 30 (except overseas voters) to be counted. If it's too late to mail in your ballot, see the links below to your county clerk for drop-off locations.
The Colorado Secretary of State's web site has voter registration and election information, including primary election FAQs, here.
The Arapahoe County Elections web site also has voter registration, election information, and ballot drop-off locations here.
And the Douglas County Elections web site has voter registration, election information, and ballot drop-off locations here.
The Colorado State Primary ballot will include the U.S. Senate race, U.S. House races, and the contested State races.
To view the Presidential Primary Republican and Democratic sample ballots in English and Spanish, visit the Arapahoe County Elections web site or the Douglas County Elections web site.
