Colorado’s new Presidential Primary – How to Participate
Colorado will hold its first Presidential Primary Election in two decades on March 3, 2020 – Super Tuesday! Political parties still hold party caucuses in March (check your local party website) and Colorado will still have a primary for statewide and local candidates in June. But ballots for the stand-alone Presidential Primary are mailed to voters beginning February 10. Here is what you need to know to participate:
- Presidential primaries in Colorado are only held by the Democratic and Republican Parties. You must be registered as a Democrat, Republican, or Unaffiliated to participate.
- Registered Democrats will receive only the Democratic Party ballot. Registered Republicans will receive only the Republican Party ballot.
- Unaffiliated voters will be mailed both party ballots but can only vote and return one.
- ***NEW*** Voters who will turn 18-years-old by the General Election, Tuesday, November 3, 2020 – Can now VOTE in Primaries! Get registered today.
- There is no voter registration deadline. You can register and vote up to and including Election Day.
If you have a Colorado Driver’s License or State ID, you can register to vote or check your registration at www.GoVoteColorado.gov. If you do not have a license or state ID, you can register by mail (downloadable form online at govotecolorado.gov) or in-person at any Boulder County Clerk & Recorder’s office (Boulder, Longmont, Lafayette).
