Everything You Need to Know About Voting in Denver

Tuesday, May 7, is election day in Denver, when voters will get to vote for a new (or perhaps incumbent) mayor, a slew of new (or perhaps incumbent) Denver City Council members, and ballot initiatives that would essentially overturn the urban camping ban and decriminalize psilocybin.

Here are some last-minute pointers for Denver voters who are still working on their ballots.

Where can you submit your ballot?

Drop off your ballot at one of the city's 28 24-hour drop boxes or at one of seven voting centers, which are open today, May 6, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and tomorrow from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. For folks who aren't interested in leaving their cars, the centers have drive-thrus.

Do not mail your ballot!

Your vote will not be counted if you mail in your ballot, since it won't arrive at the Denver Elections Division before the 7 p.m. cut off tomorrow.

If you've lost your ballot, you can still vote.

Show up at one of the seven voting centers, confess and get a replacement ballot.

You can still vote, even if you're not yet registered.

Register today or tomorrow at one of the city's seven voting centers. All you'll need is proof that you've been a resident for at least 22 days and a valid form of ID.

Results will start to roll out at 7 p.m. May 7.

Just after voting ends, the Denver Elections Division will begin releasing unofficial returns, with new information coming at 8:30, 10 and 11:30 p.m.

Results will be available online.

Results will be available on Twitter, via the @denverelections handle, and on the Denver Elections Division's website.
