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. Electronic means include fax, email, and the EveryoneCounts module. If the elector receives their ballot through electronic transmission, they may return the ballot through electronic transmission. [Section 1-7.5-115, C.R.S.; Election Rule 7.4]
Absentee ballots are mailed or delivered to an address other than the elector’s address of record. Under statute, an elector may request an absentee ballot until the Friday immediately before election day. If the elector wants to receive an absentee ballot by mail, they must file a request with the county clerk by the 7th day before election day. [Section 1-7.5-116, C.R.S.; Election Rule 7.3]
All eligible voters receive mail ballots. If an emergency or natural disaster occurs after the deadline by which ballots are mailed and a voter cannot vote in person, he may designate an authorized representative to obtain a replacement ballot on his behalf.
