Colorado clerks suggest mailing ballots to all voters

Aspen, CO Colorado

DENVER – Colorado election clerks want lawmakers to consider mailing ballots to all registered voters and look at moving the registration deadline closer to elections.

The clerks say in a letter to lawmakers last week that sending ballots by mail to all registered voters “is a clear mandate from the electorate” because about 74 percent cast their votes by mail this election.

Currently, people must choose to be on a permanent mail-in ballot list and in-person voting would still exist even if there’s a change.



Clerks say officials should also consider moving up a current deadline that requires people to register to vote 29 days before the general election. The letter also suggests that lawmakers look at how poll watchers are overseen, and address any needed changes to listing voters as active or inactive.
