The Weld County Clerk & Recorder’s Office is stepping up efforts to ensure ballots get mailed out properly following last month’s flooding.
In a letter dated Oct. 3, Steve Moreno urged voters whose residence was affected by the flooding to make sure they update their information.
“Because ballots are not forwardable, it is important we have the right address to mail your ballot in mid-October,” Moreno wrote.
The letter reminded voters that if they are living in a new residence that’s considered a permanent address, voter registration information needs to be changed in a local office or online at www.GoVoteColorado.com.
Voters temporarily displaced from a permanent residence but planning on returning can remain registered to vote at that address or add a temporary mailing address.
Moreno’s office also reiterated that they are able to help residents recover vital documents such as deeds, marriage certificates, vehicle registration and more, and that fees for replacement will be waived through year’s end.
