The Arc of Larimer County, a nonpartisan organization, would like to remind everyone of the importance of voting – including people with disabilities.  We have below basic Larimer County voting information for the 2020 election to make sure that everyone can have their voice heard.

We have a Plain-Language Disability Voter Guide here (link opens in new tab).

Election day is November 3rd, 2020.  This means your ballot must be received by 7pm on November 3rd to be counted.  Please note, a postmark does not count as received.

Colorado is a vote-by-mail state. This means that everyone registered to vote before the election will have a ballot mailed to them. Because ballots take a while to be mailed, you must be registered to vote early enough to have a ballot mailed to you.
Please note that your voter registration must be current in order to receive your ballot. Ballots cannot be forwarded. You can check your voter registration status here.  The Larimer County Clerk and Recorder reports that ballots will be mailed the week of October 12th.

The Larimer County Clerk and Recorder’s Office has created this instructional video on how to complete and return your ballot:

Mailing your ballot takes some time.  Your ballot must be received by 7pm on Election Day to count.  If you are going to mail your ballot, make sure to put it in the mail early enough for it to be received.  It is recommended that your mail your ballot back as soon as you can.  It is also recommended, that if you are able, that you drop your ballot off in person. You can view voting locations here. 

If you are not registered to vote, you can still register. In Colorado, you can register to vote and vote on the same day. If you need to register to vote, visit votelarimer.org.
