Boulder County election officials are seeking community input on the location of voter services, voting centers and ballot boxes for the 2022 general election.
The county electoral division is collecting comments and comments from the public through a survey and asking community members to submit their comments by December 1, although the legal deadline for contributions is May 2 .
Mail-in ballots are automatically sent to all active Colorado voters under state law, and Boulder County will also be opening polling centers to provide services such as ballot deposit, voting in person, requesting a replacement ballot, registering to vote, updating voter registration and providing voting materials for people with disabilities.
The county will have at least 20 polling centers open on election day, with some locations open up to two weeks in advance.
The county is currently using a geographic tool to identify where polling centers should be based on population and under-represented communities, Clerk Molly Fitzpatrick wrote in a letter accompanying the survey.
“However, we need to have input from the public to help identify new locations that we should consider, as well as variables such as impacts on traffic or difficult parking,” Fitzpatrick wrote. “Additionally, we are seeking feedback on whether there is a neighborhood, and potentially a specific location, that you think is a great location for a 24 hour ballot box.”
Surveys can be completed and submitted online at BoCo.org/2020ElectionSurvey or dropped off in person or mailed to 1750 22rd St. Suite 200, Boulder 80301.
