Trained volunteers with Just Vote! Colorado Election Protection are pushing out a new service this week, offering to answer questions from Colorado voters by phone or text message now through election day.

Just Vote! Colorado is the largest nonpartisan voter protection program in the state, and each year the organization helps hundreds of voters across the state register to vote or cast a ballot. During the 2016 election, the organization answered over 2,000 questions from voters regarding mail-in ballots, polling locations, hours of operation and election deadlines. To reach out to Just Vote! Colorado, call 866-687-8683 (866-OUR-VOTE) or text to 720-710-1661.

Additionally, voter service and polling centers are popping up all over Colorado, including one in every county. Voter service and polling centers are one-stop shops where Coloradans can register to vote, update their registration, vote in person, pick up replacement ballots and more. The centers will be open beginning on Oct. 22, most operating with normal business hours. In Summit County, centers include the Summit County Old Courthouse in Breckenridge, the Summit County Community and Senior Center in Frisco and the Silverthorne Pavilion.

Spanish speaking voters can also call 888-839-8682 (888-VE-Y-VOTA) with questions.
