Request a Replacement Ballot by 5:00PM on November 2, 2020 (Day Before The Election)

An elector may be unable to vote in person due to confinement in a hospital or residence, an immediate family member’s confinement, or emergency conditions like natural disasters. Under these circumstances, the elector may request an emergency replacement ballot. Unlike standard replacement or absentee ballots, emergency replacement ballots may be transmitted to an elector by an authorized representative or electronic means.

BY WRITTEN REQUEST: The elector may request in a personally signed written statement that the county clerk and recorder or designated election official send a replacement ballot. The county clerk and recorder or designated election official shall provide the replacement ballot, at the office of the county clerk and recorder or designated election official during the office's regular hours of business, to any authorized representative of the elector. An "authorized representative" means a person who possesses a written statement from the elector containing the elector's signature, name, and address of residence and indicating that the elector is unable to vote in person after the last day to mail a ballot and requesting that the replacement ballot be given to the authorized person as identified by name and address of residence. Read more about this process here: https://www.sos.state.co.us/pubs/info_center/laws/Title1/Title1Article7-5.html

 

BY ELECTRONIC MEANS: If the eligible elector is unable to have an authorized representative pick up the ballot at the office of the county clerk and recorder or designated election official and deliver it to the eligible elector, the designated election official shall deliver a replacement ballot to the eligible elector by electronic transfer in accordance with the rules of the secretary of state.
