Your vote this fall is important to Colorado! Our state is turning blue but we need your help. We have several races where you can make a difference, including Jared Polis for Governor, Phil Weiser for Attorney General, and Jena Griswold for Secretary of State. We need your help to pick up just one more Senate Seat to take the majority and to win Congressional seats so we can take the majority in the U.S. House! We also have issues on the ballot including funding for our schools, redistricting reforms, and payday lending reforms.
Overseas voters don't need to request a ballot, but you do need to be registered to vote in Colorado and be sure that you have requested to receive your ballot electronically. Just go to votefromabroad.org, fill in the Federal registration form, print, sign and send it in to your local election office here in Colorado.
On behalf of the Colorado Democratic Party I thank you for your commitment to voting
Chair, Colorado Democratic Party
Your deadlines are coming up. Don't forget:
REGISTER to vote from abroad by Tuesday, November 6, 7 pm MST. Your registration form will also request your ballot and may be sent by email, fax or postal mail. We recommend registering by email or fax, and requesting that your ballot be delivered to you by email.
RETURN your ballot by Tuesday, November 6 7 pm MST using Colorado's secure online ballot transfer system at https://ballotreturn.sos.colorado.gov (recommended) or by email, fax or postal mail. Your ballot must be submitted by the close of polls on Election Day. If you return your ballot by postal mail, it must be postmarked by Election Day and and received by Wednesday, November 14.
All overseas voters may vote in Colorado state and local elections as well as elections for federal offices (US House and US Senate races).
Note: When you fill in your ballot request form, be aware that selecting “I intend to return” rather than “my return is uncertain” may contribute towards establishing yourself as a tax resident in your voting state. Because the legal requirements to establish "residence" or "domicile" for tax purposes are determined by state law and the specific facts of your life, before you note that you intend to return on your form you may consider seeking advice on these matters from your tax professional.
