ELECTION FACTS!

MAKE A PLAN TO VOTE! 

 

Are you ready for the Presidential Primary on March 5, 2024?

  • Is your registration up to date?
  • Is your address correct? Did you add or remove a PO Box, or had a name change?
  • Make your corrections today to ensure you are able to vote for all of the candidates and issues in the area in which you reside. 
  • Check your voter registration information at www.govotecolorado.gov .   
  • If you are not sure about your registration information, contact our office at votemorganc@co.morgan.co.us or 542-3521, option 5 for assistance. 

 

Your voter status may be inactive if you have moved and failed to update your registration. Inactive voters will not have a ballot automatically mailed to them for the March 5, 2024 Presidential Primary Election.

 

Ballots are not forwardable to your new residence.  The Post Office will send the ballot back to our office as undeliverable.  The address would need to be corrected by the voter and then at that time a new ballot will be issued.

 

 A little planning upfront would help so that you receive your ballot in a timely manner. 

 

When will ballots be mailed?

  • Ballots will be mailed to Active Eligible Electors beginning 18-22 days prior to Election Day.

 

When can I return my ballot?

  • You may return your ballot as soon as you receive the ballot.  You do not have to wait to return your ballot. 

 

Where do I return my ballot?  We highly recommend that you:

  • Drop your ballot off at the Morgan County Clerk & Recorder’s Office at 231 Ensign Street, located on Floor 1 of the Morgan County Administration Building, or

 

  • Drop your ballot in one of three 24/7 Secure Drop Boxes (no postage required) located at:
  • Town of Wiggins, Town Hall, 304 Central Avenue, Wiggins, CO
  • City of Brush, City Hall, 600 Edison Street, Brush, CO
  • Morgan County Administration Building, 231 Ensign St, Fort Morgan, CO (south side of the building); or

 

  • You may also mail your ballot using the envelope provided with proper postage BUT please be sure to allow enough time for our office to receive your ballot,  as Post Marks DON’T Count. 

 

What if I don’t receive my ballot?

  • Contact our office to confirm voter registration and verify your address.  Our office will be able to provide you with options for voting. 

 

Can I track my ballot?

 

What if I have other election questions?

  • Call us at 970-542-3521, option 5 or email us votemorganc@co.morgan.co.us and we are happy to explain how Colorado’s election model works as well as the regulations our office is required to follow in conducting secure elections.

Rules for Determining Residency for Voting Purposes:

C.R.S. 1-2-102 (1) (a) The residence of a person is the principal or primary home or place of abode of a person.  A principal or primary home or place of abode is that home or place in which a person’s habitation if fixed and to which that person, whenever absent has the present intention of returning after a departure or absence, regardless of the duration of the absence.  You must have a residential address to register to vote.  Once you establish a residence, it exists until you establish a new residence elsewhere and notify the election division of that change. 

            A residence is a permanent building or part of a building and may include a house, condominium, apartment, room in a house, or mobile home. 

No vacant lot or business address shall be considered a residence. 

A mail service business can not be used for a residence address.  A mail service business can ONLY be used for a mailing address. 

(II) (c) The residence given for voting purposes shall be the same as the residence given for motor vehicle registration and for state income tax purposes. 

Note: For voter registration, you may not have more than one residence.

Your residential address determines what you are eligible to vote on for elections. 

For example:

  • If your residential address is within the City limits of Fort Morgan you would be eligible to vote on City of Fort Morgan candidates and questions. 
  • If your residential address is outside of the City of Fort Morgan you would not be eligible to vote on City of Fort Morgan candidates or questions. 

Can a post office box be used or a mail service box be used as a mailing address for voter registration purposes?

  • Yes.  Post office boxes and mail service boxes are ONLY acceptable as a mailing address. Meaning, that if a homeless voter uses a physical location that does not have a mailing address (such as a park), he/she may provide a post office as a mailing address.
  • Post office boxes, are NEVER acceptable for residence purposes.
  • Mail Service Boxes, are NEVER acceptable as a residence purpose. 

Need to update your address information? 

  • Got to www.govotecolorado.gov
  • Stop by the Clerk’s office at 231 Ensign Street, Fort Morgan, CO 80701
  • Call us at 970-542-3521, option 5, and we can mail you a form to fill out
