BIG ELECTION DEADLINE:
AFFILIATED VOTERS: Monday, February 3, 2020 is the last day for voters who are affiliated with a political party to change or withdraw political party affiliation if they wish to vote in a different party’s primary election for the upcoming March 3, 2020 Presidential Primary Mail Ballot Election.
Register or make your corrections on line at www.govotecolorado.com or stop by the Logan County Clerk and Recorder’s Office.
UNAFFILIATED VOTERS: An unaffiliated voter may cast a ballot for any one political party. If an unaffiliated voter returns a ballot for more than one major political party, the ballot will be rejected and none of the votes will be counted.
- You may choose which party’s ballot you want to get in the mail for the next primary election by selecting a party preference at govotecolorado.com or on any paper voter registration form.
- If you would rather receive a packet containing the ballots of all participating major parties, you can take no action or select this option when first registering to vote.
- You can also appear in person at any Voter Service and Polling Center in your county and choose the party’s ballot you want to vote.
An unaffiliated voter who selects a ballot preference in advance of a primary election will remain unaffiliated. Ballot preference is only good for one Primary; you will need to select a preference each time.
An unaffiliated voter who votes in a party’s primary will remain unaffiliated. However, the primary that you vote in will be a public record (but not how you voted).
Most unaffiliated voters will receive the ballots of both major political parties during a primary election. This allows an unaffiliated voter to choose which party’s primary they will vote in. Unaffiliated voters may only return one party’s ballot. Returning two voted ballots will result in neither ballot counting.
IF YOU ARE 17-YEARS-OLD AND WILL TURN 18 BY THE NOVEMBER 3, 2020 PRESIDENTIAL GENERAL ELECTION, you are eligible to vote in a Presidential Primary and State Primary upon registering to vote.
Ballots for all eligible registered voters will be mailed February 10 – February 14, 2020. All voted ballots; replacement ballots or affiliation declarations must be returned to the Logan County Clerk and Recorder’s Office, 315 Main St. Suite 3, Sterling, CO 80751.
