How to vote in the 2020 presidential primary

Posted at 4:15 PM, Mar 02, 2020

SOUTHERN COLORADO — Colorado will join 14 other states to vote on Tuesday, March 3 — commonly known as "Super Tuesday" — a day where many delegates are up for grabs for presidential candidates. The state having its primary on this day has some impacts on the state's role overall in the election.

This marks the state's first presidential primary in four election cycles.

If you have turned in a ballot for a primary candidate who has dropped out of the race, you will not be able to receive a second ballot. With three Democratic candidates dropping days before the primary, those who voted for candidates who are not in the race anymore will not be able to vote again. Tom Steyer, Pete Buttibieg and Amy Klobuchar all announced in the last three days that they are no longer running for the presidency.

You can also still vote if you haven't registered by bringing a proper form of identification to any Voter Service/Polling Center.

If you are 17 years old, a new law allows you to vote in Tuesday's presidential primary if you will be 18 years old by November's general election. Convicted felons were previously allowed to vote only if they completed their sentences but new this year, parolees with felony convictions can vote.

Unaffiliated voters can only turn in one of the two ballots they received in order to have your vote count.

· Michael Bennet (withdrawn)
· Joseph R. Biden
· Michael R. Bloomberg
· Cory Booker (withdrawn)
· Pete Buttigieg (withdrawn)
· Julián Castro (withdrawn)
· John K. Delaney (withdrawn)
· Tulsi Gabbard
· Amy Klobuchar (withdrawn)
· Rita Krichevsky (withdrawn)
· Deval Patrick (withdrawn)
· Bernie Sanders
· Tom Steyer (withdrawn)
· Elizabeth Warren
· Robby Wells (withdrawn)
· Marianne Williamson (withdrawn)
· Andrew Yang (withdrawn)

· Robert Andini
· Roque “Rocky” De La Fuente
· Zoltan G. Istvan
· Matthew John Matern
· Donald J. Trump
· Joe Walsh (withdrawn)
· Bill Weld

As of 10 a.m. Tuesday, the Secretary of State's office received over 1.3 million ballots. If you haven't voted, you can still drop your ballot in a drop box or vote in person until 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 3, according to a post on the Colorado Secretary of State's twitter. Also, if you have not returned your ballot, you can change your selection by crossing out your first pick and marking the oval next to your preferred candidate or get a replacement ballot in-person at a Voter Service/Polling Center.
