“A citizen of America will cross the ocean to fight for democracy,
but won’t cross the street to vote in a national election.” ~Bill Vaughan

Voter Registration Drives

We Need YOUR Help!  Please contact us to help staff the many events we’ll be at this year!

Voting is a right that Democrats have championed for years. We register people at Farmers Markets, at Cinco de Mayo fiestas, at college functions, and anywhere else that new eligible voters can be found.

Though we will have paper registration forms available, we prefer to have folks use their own phones to immediately connect to the Secretary of State’s own secure website at GoVoteColorado.com to check and update their registrations! Simple, fast, effective, and private.

Paper voter registrations – Voter Registration Drives (VRD) – in Colorado are tightly controlled:

  1. VRD agents must renew their qualifications annually, go through full training every two years and be Colorado residents.
  2. A VRD must have a minimum of two trained VRD circulators, who are trained by VRD agents or the Secretary of State, also annually. This means that if you were trained for the last election, you must undergo training again.
  3. Only specific state supplied forms and federal forms can be used for registration.
  4. Legal deadlines and penalties apply to ensure voter rights and laws are in compliance.

Register to Vote / Check your Registration

Visit GoVoteColorado to quickly register OR easily update your registration if you’ve moved recently.

You will need to register to vote if you have never registered before or if you have moved to this area. You must also update your voter registration information if you have a changed address or a changed name.

pro tip: By affiliating with the Democratic Party, you actually receive LESS junk mail – Independents are targeted by BOTH parties.
