Universal Mail-back Voting in Seven Days

In seven days mail-back voting will begin, and in ten days upwards of 600,000 Coloradans could be done with the election, except for hearing the results November 4.

The new voting system, enacted by Democrats in the 2013 legislature, could raise voter turnout well beyond the two million votes expected.

As of October 1, 2013, there are 3.6 million Colorado voters. The entire 3.6 million registered voter base will receive a ballot on or about October 15. In 2010, 1.8 million voted and 2.5 million were active voters. Currently, 2.9 million are active.

If 72 percent of the current 2.9 million active voters vote, it will be 2.1 million. Of course, since all 3.6 million registered voters are getting a ballot and it is the goal of the campaigns to reach additional voters, totals are likely to exceed 2.1 million.

I love vote by "mail".
Get my ballot.
Vote within a few minutes of receipt.
Carry it to the drop-off box at the park.
