With less than one week to go until Election Day, you need to drop off your ballot instead of putting it in the mail to make sure it arrives on time. Ballots need to be returned to a vote center or drop box by 7 p.m. Nov. 3.

Reports of slower mail delivery times nationally and across Colorado since mid-summer are causing concern as more voters than ever plan to vote by mail in the Nov. 3 election, to avoid coronavirus exposure. But an unscientific experiment by the Colorado News Collaborative over the past month found little to be concerned about in the Centennial State.

A national pre-election mailer from the United States Postal Service arrived in mailboxes across the region this past weekend. Colorado Election Officials are warning residents about the misinformation that was distributed. KSUT’s Sarah Flower has more.

Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 3, but registered voters in Colorado will receive mail-in ballots after Oct. 9. Vote-by-mail began for the entire state in 2013, although some counties used it before that. Here's a handy guide to basic election questions.


State of Colorado


More than 1.6 million Coloradans turned out for the June primary two months ago. Fewer than 11,000 voted in person at polling places, where coronavirus precautions were in place. Instead, voters across the state took the ballots they received in the mail and returned them primarily to drop-off boxes.

Primary voting ballots will go out in the mail to La Plata County residents on June 8. COVID-19 has changed what voting in person will look like locally. KSUT’s Sarah Flower has that story.
