Voter Registration in Colorado
Reaching the ripe old age of 18 brings with it a couple of inalienable rights and duties. One, if you are a male, is the need to register for the Selective Service System; the other, of course, is the ability to vote in local and national elections.
Registering to vote (and voting) is not only a civic responsibility, it is extremely easy. In many cases, just prior to important general elections or during mass voting drives, you will have people banging down your door or approaching you like panhandlers on the street begging for you to sign up.
Registering to Vote for the First Time
Sometimes it does seem like you can register to vote just about anywhere, from a table outside a supermarket to a college dining hall (especially when the hoopla of a divisive presidential election is on the horizon).
But other times, when things are rather calm and the cycle of local elections is coming and going without much fanfare, your best bet is registering by mail, or signing up at a local DMV driver license office if you have to renew, replace or apply for a driver license or ID card.
You can find voter registration forms from the Colorado Secretary of State website.
You'll also need to send a photocopy of your driver license, ID, or a document from the state's acceptable identification list.Other Topics in This SectionArticles
