Primary ballots are in the mail – what you need to know about voting or assisting someone with a disability while voting

Posted June 4th, 2018
Primary election ballots are in the mail and the general election is rapidly approaching on November 6th.  The Arc of Larimer County, a nonpartisan organization, would like to remind everyone of the importance of voting – including people with disabilities.

The Colorado Secretary of State has a webpage with frequently asked questions about voting when you live with a disability.  You can view it here: https://www.sos.state.co.us/pubs/elections/FAQs/ElectorsWithDisabilities.html

Rooted in Rights has produced a video about how you can support someone with a disability in voting.  You can watch the video below or on The Rooted in Rights website here.

Some important things to remember:

  • Return your primary ballot by June 26th at 7pm.  Your ballot must be received (not mailed) by that date to be counted.
  • Unaffiliated voters can choose to vote in either primary, but they can only return one ballot.  Learn more details here.
  • Questions?  Call the Larimer County Clerk and Recorder’s Office at (970) 498-7820 or visit http://votelarimer.org
