*8/2/19 Colorado Secretary of State: Two New Voting Laws Go Into Effect Today

  • Modifications to Uniform Election Code (HB19-1278): This legislation increases access to Voter Service & Polling Centers (VSPCs) and ballot drop boxes across Colorado, and gives county clerks the tools they need to run efficient elections in their communities.

  • Voting access for people with Disabilities (SB19-202): This law requires Colorado to increase access to voting for eligible Coloradans with disabilities by ensuring they can privately and independently vote at home or at a Voter Service and Polling Center using nonvisual access or low-vision access technology.
