How do I make sure my registration is up to date?
To access your electronic ballot, your voter registration information must be up to date. Contact your county clerk or visit www.GoVoteColorado.com to verify your information if you have difficulty accessing your electronic ballot.

Voting In Person
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires VSPCs to meet minimum thresholds of compliance in order to serve the needs of every voter across the country and in Colorado.

Parking
VSPCs are required to create enough accessible parking on premises. Access isles are required to be at least 60 inches for cars and 96 inches for vans.

Accessible routes from car/van to polling place
VSPCs are required to have no protruding objects, have wide enough routes, and to use signage to direct voters to the polling location.

Voting Area
VSPCs are required to have accessible entry and exits, have a specific height for the voting machines, and have enough clearance when entering the voting area.

Temporary Remedies
If a VSPC is a location where full compliance is not entirely possible, then the VSPC can and must takes steps to remedy the issue. VSPCs may remedy a lack of accessible parking signs and parking spaces by having temporary accessible parking signs and by using traffic cones to mark accessible parking spaces. If a VSPC does not already have an accessible ramp to enter the polling location, then the VSPC may construct temporary portable ramps. In addition, a VSPC may have doors that are outdated and lack the current standards of the day. In order to remedy this, a VSPC may open the doors to make them accessible by inserting door stops, wedges, and other means of propping doors open for use.
