How to Vote

It’s easy to register to vote and vote in Colorado. Our state is just about the best! You can use the Secretary of State’s website to register to vote.

Did you know you can vote while on parole? That’s new for Colorado as of 2019. Did you know that people who are in jail as a pretrial detainee are also eligible to vote?

Sometimes we hear people say they think their vote doesn’t matter. That simply isn’t true. Many political races are determined by several hundred votes, especially in a primary race. If you don’t vote, the people who vote (and sometimes that’s just a fraction of registered voters) determine who represents you. Finally, if you still think your vote doesn’t matter, tell us why certain groups across the country work to suppress voter turnout.
