Your 2016 election guide
Here’s a compilation of Post Independent campaign coverage in state and local races.
Ballots were mailed to registered Colorado voters the week of Oct. 17. Online voter registration must be completed by Oct. 31. Monday was the last day that county clerks could mail a ballot to people who have registered online, by mail, email or fax. Voters who register or submit an address change after Monday will be sent a letter telling them they are registered to vote or the change has been made to their voter record, but they must appear in person at an early voting or Election Day voter service and polling center to obtain a ballot.
In-person registration is permitted through Election Day, Nov. 8, at county clerk offices or other voter service center. See voter registration frequently-asked questions from the secretary of state’s office here.
