What kind of pen should I use? It is recommended to use a ballpoint pen, Blue is best, Black in fine and Red will not be read by the scanners. DO NOT USE A SHARPIE or felt tip pen. If that is all that is provided to you demand a ballpoint pen or better yet, bring your own pen.
What if too many people show up to vote in person?
If you are in line before 7pm when the polls close you will be allowed to vote. You will not be turned away.
What about WRITE IN CANDIDATES?
You can ask the Poll Judges for the names of candidates who are eligible to be a "Write in Candidate" to get the proper spelling of their names. Yes in Colorado you have to send in an Affidavit of Intent the SOS to be an eligible Write In Candidate. See the SOS website here.
Can I write in candidates who lost the Primary?
No. You can write them in but the vote will not count. If a candidate lost the Primary Election they are no longer eligible for that office in the general election. CRS §1-4-105
Some people want to write in their favorite candidates who lost the Primary as a protest. These votes will simply not be counted and the party you are wanting to protest against will have no idea you have done so. A possible alternative way to submit a protest vote would be to vote for a 3rd party candidate who more closely aligns with your values. If the percentage of votes going to 3rd party or Independent candidates increases it will not be over looked by either of the two parties.
If I Vote Independent will I "Split the Vote"?
Depends on how you look at it, We have been told this for decades. We have also done the same thing over and over hoping for a different outcome. Where has it gotten us? Sounds like the definition of insanity. Your Vote is Your Voice, Use it Wisely. Vote for the Person not the Party. If the candidate your Party has put forward does not align with your values do you want them in office? Trust your gut and vote for who you believe will represent you. And Remember, Unaffiliated Voters make up the majority of Registered Voters in Colorado.
