Don't Mail In Your Ballots (Drop Them Off Now)


October 31, 2018

On Monday, Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams urged voters to start dropping off their ballots at a voting center or 24-hour drop box. That's because postmarks don't count -- ballots must be in the hands of an election official by 7 p.m. Election Day, Nov. 6.

Voters who use a voting center operated by their county clerk or a 24-hour drop box do not need to use stamps. Local voters can go to the Fountain Police Department’s Voter Service and Polling Center, which is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weedays until Nov. 5. On election day, Tuesday, Nov. 7 hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The site will also be open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. this Sat., Nov. 3.

The Voter Service and Polling Centers in each county will be open through Election Day, except for Sunday, Nov. 4. All voters who vote in person must provide identification.
