In 2022, we released the Youth Agenda, a policy platform by young people for all people, to guide our work on campuses, at the Capitol, and at the ballot box. Guided by the vision laid out in the Youth Agenda, we evaluated the ballot measures on Colorado’s 2022 ballot to see if they aligned with young people’s values and political aspirations.

About the 2022 Election

Key Dates

  • Oct. 17: Ballots start to arrive in the mail and 24-hour ballot drop boxes begin to open 
  • Oct. 24: Voter Service and Polling Centers (often referred to as VSPCs) start to open 
  • Oct. 31: The last day to update your voter registration or register to vote online to receive a ballot in the mail 
  • Nov. 1: Recommended last day to mail your ballot to ensure it’s received by 7 p.m. on Election Day (don’t forget postage!)
  • Nov. 8: Election Day! Be in line at a VSPC by 7 p.m. on Election Day to register, vote, or solve any election-related issue; be in line at a ballot drop box by 7 p.m. 

Check your ballot to see if a copy or print-out of an acceptable ID is required (black & white is fine). See the full list of acceptable IDs at JustVoteColorado.org

Who Can Vote?

To be eligible to vote in Colorado, you must:

  • Be a U.S. citizen
  • Be 18 years old or older by Election Day
  • Live in Colorado at least 22 days before Election Day
  • Not currently be serving a sentence for a felony conviction can vote in the state of Colorado.

In 2019, many people in our state had their right to vote restored. Learn more about voting eligibility for people who have been involved in the criminal justice system.

Voting on College Campuses

Colorado students have the right to vote in Colorado. 

Campus Voter Service Centers and 24-hour drop boxes are open on campuses across the state. You can visit a Voter Service Center in your county to register, update your voter registration, vote in person, and solve any election-related issue—don’t forget to bring ID! You can drop your ballot off at any drop box in the state.

Wondering if your campus has a Voter Service Center or drop box, where it’s at, and when it’s open? We got you!

You can also find all Voter Service Center and drop box locations at JustVoteColorado.org.

About the Guides

The guides include key information about voting in Colorado and information about the measures on the 2022 ballot, including a summary, supporters or opponents, and reasoning behind New Era Colorado’s stance. Use this online voter guide to help you make an informed vote on some of the ballot measures that could impact our state.

Note: A mailed version of the statewide voter guide mistakenly labeled Proposition 121 as Proposition 123 in a subheader. We recommend voting NO on Proposition 121 and YES on Proposition 123.
