Primary election 2022: It's too late now to mail your ballot

Colorado voters should return their ballot at a drop-off box or voting center for the June 28 primary election.

DENVER — The vast majority of Colorado voters have yet to return their ballot for the June 28 primary election, and now they can't do it by mail.

The deadline for mailing back a ballot was Monday. Anyone returning their ballot between now and Election Day should do so at a drop-off box or voting center.

The good news is that there are more than 400 drop boxes and 130 voting centers statewide. To find where to return your ballot or vote in person, visit GoVoteColorado.gov.

Also on that website, voters can check their voter registration, look at a sample ballot and sign up for BallotTrax to track their ballot.

Voters must return their ballot by 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 28.

As of noon Thursday, a total of 525,807 ballots had been returned for the Colorado primary election, according to the Colorado Secretary of State's Office. That's about 14% of all the eligible active voters in the state.

Unaffiliated voters who didn't choose a party preference got both the Republican and Democratic ballots and may return one of those in the primary election.
