COLORADO SPRINGS — Colorado's primary election is one month away where voters will decide on candidates for Congress, state legislature and other races, such as district attorney.

If you're a registered voter who needs to update your information, you have until Monday to do so. Any changes made after June 1 will not be processed until after results from the June primary election, which is on June 30, are certified. To update your registration, click here.

Ballots will be mailed to voters after June 8 for their registered party or if you are unaffiliated, you will receive two ballots. If you'd like to receive only one, you have until June 1 to let your county clerk know. If you do receive two ballots, you can only pick one party's ballot to vote on and mail back.

In this election, 17-year-old voters can participate if they are turning 18 years old before Nov. 3.

Those who are mailing in ballots have until June 22 to do so or you can drop off your ballot at an official drop box.
