How to Vote
A new online feature in Colorado allows voters to check their voter information and ballot online. You can also get your ballot by text message and on the 9NEWS app.
You can sign up for political and election alerts in the 9NEWS app by opening the app and hitting the button in the upper left-hand corner. You can also opt into local politics in the 9NEWS+ app on Roku and Fire TV devices. You can find your sample ballot and the state and local issues that will be up for vote.
The online guide allows voters to type in their home address and see a list of the races that appear on their ballot. They can also compare candidates’ positions side-by-side and print out a list of their choices to take with them to the polls on Election Day.
The guide also provides information about the four proposals on the ballot that voters may choose to “yes” or “no.” It contains the language that will appear on the ballot for each proposal, a description of what would happen if it passed or failed, and statements submitted by proponents and opponents of each proposal.

Due to a printer error, not everyone got their election “blue book.” That’s the little cheat sheet that covers all ballot measures. The Secretary of State’s office reminds voters that if they didn’t get their blue books, you can still get information on statewide measures by visiting this link.
There are also several local ballot questions on the ballot. In Denver, voters will decide whether to lift a conservation land easement on the former Park Hill Golf Course. They’ll also consider a question that would change the way City Council hears zoning complaints and exceptions.
In addition, Denver voters will decide on a citywide sidewalks plan, legal representation for evictions and a tax to fund the public library. And in the mountain communities, voters will weigh in on lodging taxes to support affordable housing programs and tourism initiatives. Marshall Zelinger is taking a closer look at the most important local ballot measures in this week’s 9 news election guide.
