Your Vote! Matters
CCDC Advocates will be registering people to vote at the downtown Denver Public Library (10 W 14th Ave. Parkway) on Wednesday, July 18, 2018 from 10:00 am-noon.
We want all people with disabilities to realize their vote matters and voting is one way to make sure essential benefits which enable community living are available.
Did you know?
Colorado law requires that all voters with disabilities have the right to cast their vote privately and without assistance…
…even individuals with a guardian.
- All Colorado voters now receive mail ballots. This means that inaccessible polling places are no longer an issue. However, if you prefer to cast your ballot in person, rather than vote by mail, you still have the right to do so.
- There are no restrictions on the right to vote under Colorado law related to disabilities.
- Colorado statute specifies that individuals confined in a mental illness institution “shall not lose the right to vote because of the confinement.”
- An individual in jail serving a misdemeanor sentence has the right to register to vote and vote in any election.
- Pretrial detainees are eligible to vote.
- You are eligible to vote if you are on bond as long as you are not convicted of a felony.
- People on probation may register to vote and cast their vote in any election.
- In Colorado, you have the right to vote after you have served your sentence, including parole.
Learn more about your voting rights by going to Colorado Secretary of State voter information.
