The term "residence" generally means the principal or primary home or place in which a person lives. A "residence" is a permanent building or part of a building and may include a house, apartment, condominium, room in a house, or mobile home. You must have a residence to register vote.
A mailing address is location where mail is received. Many in San Miguel County have a separate PO Box from their residence. This can also be used for students away at any institution of higher education.
A ballot address is a third mailing option for receiving a ballot. An example for use of a ballot address would be when a voter is away from their permanent residence each year during the same time. If an election falls during that time, the ballot will be sent to this address. All other election material will be sent to the mailing address.
Please note, once any address is established, it will not be changed until the voter changes by either going online or completing a new Colorado Voter Registration Form and submitting it to the Clerk & Recorder’s office.
