DENVER — With more than 2.5 million ballots already returned in the 2020 election, Colorado appears to be on track to meet or exceed voter turnout in the 2016 election.

But there are still many Coloradans who haven’t voted yet. And the good news is there are plenty of options for last-minute voters to cast their ballot.

At this point, it’s too late to mail your completed ballot in. You will need to drop your ballot off at a designated drop off site or drop-box in your county of residence. Your ballot must be in the box by 7 p.m. Tuesday for it to count. Find the closest drop box in your county here.

Even if you haven’t registered or want to vote in-person, you still have up to 7 p.m. on Election Day to do so. You can cast your ballot and/or register at your local voter service and polling center. Find your local voting center here. Keep in mind that if you try to register to vote Tuesday and you don't have a verifiable ID, you may vote a provisional ballot.

If you plan on voting in-person, keep these Colorado election rules in mind. Voters who are in line at their polling location by 7 p.m. are allowed to vote no matter how long it takes for each person to cast his or her ballot.
