The Town of Vail Regular Municipal Election on Tuesday, Nov. 3 is a polling place election; however, if you’re not available to vote at the polls that day, there is a process to obtain a ballot by mail.
A request must be made to the Town Clerk’s Office for an absentee voter’s ballot by completing an application. The application form is available by clicking here
or from the Town Clerk’s Office in the Vail Municipal Building, 75 S. Frontage Road. The deadline to request and submit an absentee voting request form is Oct. 30. Absentee voting will begin at the Vail Municipal Building on Oct. 22 during regular office hours from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and will continue through Nov. 3. All absentee ballots must be returned to the Town Clerk’s office by end of Election Day at 7 p.m. on Nov. 3 either submitted by mail or hand-delivered.
Recent changes to the state’s election laws mean that Colorado municipalities no longer retain a permanent mail-in voter list which had been used in the past to facilitate the mail-in ballot process. However, registered Vail electors
can also choose to become a permanent absentee voter in which a ballot would be mailed with every election in the future. This status is accomplished by completing an application for “permanent absentee voter status” with the Town Clerk’s Office.
To register to vote or verify your voter registration, or update your registration with a new address or any changes, please visit the Secretary of State’s link: govotecolorado.com.
