  10. Can I change my political affiliation for the June 25, 2024 Election?

    Affiliation updates for the June 25, 2024 Election must be done by Monday, June 3, 2024. 

    You can view and update your political affiliation online. Your affiliation will be listed under the “Voter Details” tab.

    If you update your political affiliation between Monday, June 3, 2024 and Tuesday, June 25, 2024, it will not be updated until after the June 25, 2024 Election is certified by the Colorado Secretary of State.

    If you are currently unaffiliated, you can affiliate with a major party at a Voter Service and Polling Center (VSPC) until 7 PM on Election Day.

  11. Why is there a secrecy sleeve with my mail ballot?

    Larimer County Elections is required, by law, to record which party's ballot each unaffiliated voter returns in Primary Elections. 

    As such, in Primary Elections, providing secrecy sleeves to unaffiliated voters helps us:

    • Provide important information for unaffiliated voters, and
    • Identify which party's ballot was returned while safeguarding voter anonymity.
  12. How do I know the Larimer County received my ballot?

    You can check the status of your mail ballot through the following methods:

    • Look up your voter registration on the Colorado Secretary of State's website
    • Call the Larimer County Elections Office
    •  Use the orange stub on your ballot to track your ballot through BallotTrax.

    Note: Ballot tracking is only available for mail in ballots.

    Yes. ADA accessible voting machines are available for use at all Voter Service and Polling Centers. For more information, please call the Larimer County Elections Office.

  14. I am an overseas or military voter. What are my voting options?

    Click here to view the resources available to you or you may call, fax or email the Larimer County Elections office.

  15. What should I do if I receive a ballot at my residence for someone who no longer lives there?

    Whether a former resident or a relative who has moved out – simply write “Return to Sender - No Longer at This Address” on the outside of the unopened envelope and return it in the mail.  Doing so helps keep the voter registration rolls clean.

  16. What is a Special Congressional Vacancy Election, and why is one happening?

    A Special Congressional Vacancy Election was triggered by Congressman Ken Buck's resignation from the 118th U.S. Congress - District 4 on March 22, 2024, prior to his term ending on January 3, 2025. Governor Jared Polis set June 25, 2024 as the date for a Special Congressional Vacancy Election to determine who will serve the rest of the unexpired partial term of office for Congressional District 4 (CD-4).

  17. How does a Special Congressional Vacancy Election differ from a Primary Election?

    Both elections will be held on June 25, 2024. All registered voters, regardless of party affiliation, who live in CD-4 are eligible to vote in the Special Congressional Vacancy Election. However, your party affiliation will determine your eligibility to vote in the Primary Election. The Special Congressional Vacancy Election winner for CD-4 will serve a partial term in Congress from July 2024 to January 2025. Primary Election winners will compete in the November 2024 General Election.

  18. How were the nominees for the Special Congressional Vacancy Election determined without a Primary Election?

    Colorado law allows for each political party to convene a vacancy committee through which they each selected a nominee to appear on the Special Congressional Vacancy Election ballot.

  19. When will the winner of the Special Congressional Vacancy Election for CD-4 serve? When will the winner of the Primary Election for CD-4 serve?
    • The Special Congressional Vacancy Election winner will serve the rest of the unexpired partial term of office in the 118th U.S. Congress, starting in July 2024 and ending in January 2025.
    • Each Party's Primary Election winners will appear as candidates on the November 2024 General Election ballot. That General Election will determine who will serve a full term in the 119th U.S. Congress, starting in January 2025 and ending in January 2027.
  20. Why are some candidates in the Special Congressional Vacancy Election but not in the Primary Election for CD-4?

    Because these are two different races for different terms in Congress.

  21. I am a registered voter in Larimer County, what will I receive for the June 25, 2024 Election?

    It depends! One of the following scenarios should apply to you:

    • I live in CD-4 and I am affiliated with the Democratic or Republican Party.
      • You will receive your Party's Primary Election ballot. The Special Congressional Vacancy Election will appear on the back of your ballot.
    • I live in CD-4 and I am unaffiliated.
      • You will receive both the Democratic and Republican Party's Primary Election ballots. You may mark and return only one ballot. The Special Congressional Vacancy Election will appear on the back of whichever ballot you choose to return.
    • I live in CD-4 and I am affiliated with a minor party.
      • You will receive a ballot with only the Special Congressional Vacancy Election.
    • I do not live in CD-4 and I am affiliated with the Democratic or Republican Party.
      • You will receive your Party's Primary Election ballot.
    • I do not live in CD-4 and I am unaffiliated.
      • You will receive both the Democratic and Republican Party's Primary Election ballots. You may mark and return only one ballot.
    • I do not live in CD-4 and I am affiliated with a minor party.
      • You will not receive a ballot for the June 25, 2024 Election.

     If you have additional questions about what to expect on your ballot, you can view your sample ballot on the Secretary of State's website.

  22. How do I know if I live in CD-4 or my party affiliation?

    1. Enter your first and last name, zip code, and date of birth.
