Happy National Voter Registration Day! Register to vote now to have your voice heard in the November election.
What You Need to Know
In-state students: All active, registered Colorado voters automatically receive a ballot in the mail a few weeks before Election Day. If you plan to vote in Boulder or in your home county, make sure you're registered to vote and that your ballot mailing address is up to date.
Out-of-state students: You may choose to either request an absentee ballot from your home state or register to vote in Boulder County. You cannot register and/or vote in both locations. Many states have a registration and/or absentee ballot request deadline, so act now to receive your ballot.
Note: If you register to vote in Colorado, you'll be considered a Colorado resident for motor vehicle registration, income tax, and jury duty purposes. Registering to vote does not automatically make you a resident for tuition purposes. Your CU Boulder tuition classification won't change unless you take all of the necessary actions to establish residency and successfully petition for a change in residency.
Students living on campus: Whether voting in Colorado or in your home state via absentee ballot, you must format your on-campus address correctly in your voter registration for your ballot to find you. Visit Boulder County's Student Voting Guidelines page for instructions.
In-Person Registration & Voting
Starting Oct. 30, you can visit the UMC Vote Center to register, vote in person, or call ahead to order your ballot to-go.
See the Boulder County elections page for details when we're closer to the election.
