Colorado primary election 2024: What to know about same-day voter registration

Colorado's state primary election is today, and Colorado has same-day voter registration at any of the in-person locations if you still need to register to vote.

Coloradans can register at any of the polling locations while they are open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 25. To find an in-person voting location, click here.

There is also the option to register online, but at this point it is too late to receive a mail-in ballot for the state primary. To register online, go to and click on "Yes, register online" under the Register to Vote header. On the same website, you can download a form to fill out to send to your county clerk's office. Colorado residents are also able to register to vote anytime of the year when you obtain your Colorado driver's license at a DMV.

What is the state primary election?

Similar to the presidential primary, the state primary allows for Colorado voters to select numerous Democratic or Republican candidate choices for the Nov. 5 general election. While this election won't have anything to do with the presidential candidates, Colorado voters will have the opportunity to select their choice of candidates in the races for the Colorado House of Representatives, the Colorado Senate and Colorado's seats in U.S. Congress, among others.
