Colorado Ballots In The Mail

This is the first year that Colorado will have an all mail-in ballot election. Ballots for every active voter in the state were mailed today and should arrive at voter's mailboxes in the next few days.

If you don't receive a ballot by the end of the week, you should investigate the situation to see if your voter registration has lapsed.  A lapsed voter registration or lack of voter registration may in principle be corrected anytime through election day, but it is best to deal with it as soon as you learn that there is a problem.

Incidentally, Colorado is currently projected to once again (as it has been in the previous two Presidential elections) be the marginal state that pushes the winning Presidential candidate over the 270 electoral vote mark (sorting state or separate Congressional district that can award electoral voters results by the percentage of the popular vote for the winning candidate).

Any swing in the mood of the voters necessary to change the outcome of the election has to be big enough to swing Colorado.
