Some voters in Colorado Springs and Pueblo are heading to the polls for a historic first. Two state senators are facing the possibility of being recalled for their support of the state's gun control laws. For many voters, questions remain.
Below are some frequently asked recall questions and answers from the Colorado Secretary of State.
How do I know if I live in the recall election’s senate district?
Due to redistricting, your senate district may have changed. The September 10 recall elections will only be available to eligible electors in Senate District 11 in El Paso County and Senate District 3 in Pueblo County. You can verify your senate district by visiting GoVoteColorado.com and clicking the “Manage My Registration” link. Enter your name, zip code and birthdate to verify your voter registration and see your current senate district.
I need to update my voter registration before the recall election. When can I do that?
If you’ve been a Colorado resident for at least 22 days before the election, you can register at your polling place.
When will I receive my mail ballot?
Due to the tight timeframe of these recall elections, the county clerks will hold in-person voting at polling places. Mail ballots will not automatically be mailed.
Where can I vote?
In both recall elections, voters can cast their ballot at any of the polling places within the county.
For Pueblo voters in Senate District 3, they can visit PuebloVotes.com to find their nearest polling place and hours of operation.
For voters in Senate District 11 in El Paso County, they can visit http://car.elpasoco.com to find their nearest polling place and hours of operation.
