CURE YOUR BALLOT

Occasionally, there are errors that are easy to fix that can keep a ballot from being counted. When that happens, the County Clerk should contact you to let you know there is something you need to do to “cure” your ballot and have it count in this historic election. Alternatively, to be sure, you can check to see if your ballot was rejected at govotecolorado.gov > check my mail ballot status > ballot information.

If you need to “cure” your ballot, you have until Thursday November 12, 2020 at 11:59pm. It’s quick and easy to cure. Here’s how >>

For more information, contact the Colorado Secretary of State or your local county clerk & recorder.
