DENVER — In addition to mailing in your ballot for the Nov. 2, 2021, election, you also have the option to leave it in one of more than 400 ballot drop boxes or to vote in person at any of 150 polling places in Colorado.
Every Colorado county has at least one of each option, and populated areas along the Front Range have dozens.
Mail ballots started going out to voters on Oct. 8.
Oct. 25 is the last day to return a ballot by mail. After that date, you have to use a drop box or return the ballot in person.
State law only requires at least one drop box for counties with 15,000 or fewer active voters, which accounts for the apparent voting “deserts” seen in some rural parts of the state.

Some counties have a third option, where you can hand your ballot to a person. This is defined by the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office as “a location established for the receipt of mail ballots under the supervision of a municipal clerk, election judges, a county clerk and recorder of a member of the clerk and recorder’s staff.”
Colorado has a tool that allows voters to check their registration, track their ballot and find nearby in-person voting sites.
