LONGMONT - The Boulder County Clerk and Recorder's Office is opening the Voter Service and Polling Center early to help displaced voters.
The voting center is opening one week earlier to assist flood victims who are eligible to vote but may not be receiving their mail at their registered address.
All voters who want to register to vote, get a replacement ballot or vote in person are welcome at any voter service and polling center. That is located at 1750 33rd Street in Boulder.
The 2013 Coordinated Election, set for Nov. 5, is being conducted by mail ballot but any voter can cast a ballot in person at one of Boulder County's Voter Service and Polling Centers.
All active, registered voters should receive a ballot at the mailing address listed on their voter registration record. However, if a voter displaced by flooding is not receiving mail, or they have forwarded their mail to a new address without updating their voter registration record, they will not receive a ballot. (Under Colorado law, ballots are not forwardable.)
If you're a displaced voter, here's how to make sure you receive a ballot for the upcoming election:
1. Go to www.GoVoteColorado.com no later than Monday, Oct. 28, and update your address (must have a Colorado driver's license or state ID to use website). A ballot will be mailed to your updated address.
2. Visit one of four voter service and polling centers in Boulder County to update your information and pick up a ballot. Complete details and directions available at www.BoulderCountyVotes.org : Boulder: 1750 33rd St. (open now through 7 p.m. on Election Day) Longmont: 529 Coffman St. (open Monday, Oct. 21, through 7 p.m. on Election Day) Lafayette: 1376 Miners Drive, Suite 105 (open Monday, Oct. 28, through 7 p.m. on Election Day) Boulder: University Club, CU Campus, 972 Broadway (open Monday, Oct. 28, through 7 p.m. on Election Day)
