What is Automatic Voter Registration?

When an individual interacts with certain agencies, such as the DMV, they usually will provide information such as name, address, date of birth, etc. This information is then used to register that individual to vote in Colorado.

The voter’s county clerk will verify if they have a complete record to register the individual to vote. If the voter’s record is complete, the county clerk will send a notice to the voter that they are registered to vote. The voter can return the notice to either decline to be registered or to affiliate with a party. If the voter does not decline to be registered within 20 days after the notice is mailed and the form is not returned as undeliverable, the elector is then registered to vote.
