Countdown to

General Election Day,

Voting Has Never Been Easier!

In Colorado, ballots are mailed to the voter for all elections.

Register to vote online at least 10 days before the election so you can receive your mailed ballot. 

Check the status of your voter registration online to update address, party affiliation, etc.

Or visit the Montezuma County Clerk to register and vote in person, even on election day. Call first to find out about safety precautions to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.

     140 West Main Street, Suite 1

      Cortez, CO 81321

      (970) 565-3728

Or complete the paper voter registration form and mail or take it to the above address in time to get your ballot in the mail.

You can also register to vote at the Department of Motor Vehicles, at 140 W. Main, or 2210 E. Main.

Important Information

If you register to vote in person bring one of the following:

     Colorado Driver's License

     Department of Revenue number

     Last 4 numbers of your SS#.

If you'll be 18 by the General Election on Nov. 3, 2020 you may register to vote and vote in the presidential primary, which will be on March 3, 2020. Ballots will be mailed mid-February. You can also vote in the non-presidential primary, held on June 30th, 2020. 

You must be a Colorado resident for 30 days and be registered with the county clerk in the county where you live in order to vote.

If you're an Unaffiliated voter you'll receive a Democratic and a Republican ballot in the primary but you may only vote one, otherwise both will be voided.

In order to participate in the Montezuma County Democrats' precinct caucuses you must be registered as a Democrat in your precinct by February 14th, 2020 (22 days before the caucus on March 7th). The caucuses are open to all to observe, but only those meeting this requirement can run for precinct leadership positions, vote, and run to be a delegate to the county convention.

A criminal record doesn't prevent you from registering and voting in Colorado unless you're currently in prison for a felony.
