Mail Ballot Elections
All Mail Election
Every eligible elector will receive a ballot in the mail. Ballots may be returned by mail or dropped off in person at a voter service and polling center (VSPC), at the indicated hours. At each location labeled a voter service and polling center, voters may also exchange their mail ballots to vote a paper ballot in person or vote on an electronic voting machine, as well as register to vote, change physical or mailing addresses, or obtain replacement ballots.
Note: The San Miguel County Courthouse is not ADA Accessible and no electronic voting machine is available there.
Mail-in ballots cannot be forwarded. If you will be away from your normal mailing address at the time ballots are mailed, you may make arrangements for someone to pick up and forward your complete ballot package in another envelope. Or, give us a temporary mailing address using either Go Vote Colorado, the Change in Voter Registration Information (PDF) or visit the Clerk's office.
How to Vote With Your Mail Ballot
- Complete the ballot according to the instructions on the ballot and on the Secrecy Sleeve. Sign and date the back of the return envelope, under the flap, where it says "Affidavit of Voter," seal the envelope and put it in the mail. Be sure to put enough postage on for first class delivery and mail it early enough to be received at the Telluride Post Office on Election Day. If you decide to send it by an overnight courier service, not by USPS, you must send it to the County Clerk and Recorder's Office.
- Complete your ballot according to the same instructions, but drop it in the ballot collection box at one of the following places
