Colorado is an ALL mail ballot state.  It is no longer necessary for a voter to go in person to vote.  Every active registered elector will receive a ballot in the mail.

As of May 7, 2018, Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams gave this information to the press:

            “So far, 36,729 unaffiliated voters have picked which ballot to vote in the June 26 Primary.  They choose 20,419 D ballots or 55.9%; R’s: 13,919 or 37.9%.  There are no third-party primaries so U’s who picked those will receive both ballots.  ONLY RETURN ONE.”
