How to Vote in Boulder

City of Boulder Voters! This is the week you should receive your ballot in the mail. After you have dutifully voted for Nikki McCord you’ll need to deposit your ballot before November 5. I personally do not place my ballot in the mail. I believe paying for a stamp to place your ballot in the mail is a poll tax. A poll tax is a tax levied as a prerequisite for voting. After Reconstruction, many southern states passed poll taxes in an effort to keep African Americans from voting.

Vote By Mail

If you choose to place a stamp on your ballot and drop it in the mail, you must ensure that your ballot is received no later than 7 p.m. on Tuesday, November 5 – Election Day.
