Ballots for the Nov. 6 election will soon be mailed out. Douglas County residents who plan to vote on Election Day need to make sure they're registered and ready.
Ballots will be mailed to all registered voters starting Oct. 15. Residents who have not received a ballot by Oct. 22 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 10 ballot dropoff sites, nine of which are open 24 hours.
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. 6 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 any 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. 22. Polling centers will be equiped to help residents register to vote, update their voter registration, replace a ballot, vote in person or drop off a ballot.
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. 5. Saturday hours are offered Oct. 27 and Nov. 3, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
