Colorado Provisional Voting

Provisional ballots will be counted after the voters' eligibility is confirmed and no later than 14 days after a General Election and 10 days after a primary election.

You may vote provisionally if:

  • You vote outside the county where you live
  • The statewide registration system shows you already voted in the election
  • You don't present a valid form of ID

You can register and change your address on Election Day to vote a normal ballot.

After you vote a provisional ballot, you will receive a receipt. This receipt will explian how you determine the status of your provisional ballot.

A provisional ballot affidavit is treated as a voter registration application for the next election, regardless of whether the provisional ballot is counted, as long as the affidavit contains all the required information and the voter is eligible to register.
