Colorado Voter ID Requirements


If you’re a first-time voter, and you did not include a copy of your ID with your voter registration form, you must include a copy with your absentee ballot application or with your voted absentee ballot. The following forms of identification are acceptable, as long as they show your name and a Colorado address:

– A valid Colorado driver’s license
– A valid identification card issued by the Colorado Department of Revenue
– A valid U.S. passport
– A valid employee identification card with a photograph of the eligible elector issued by any branch, department, agency, or entity of the United States
government or of this state, or by any county, municipality, board, authority, or other political subdivision of this state
– A valid pilot’s license issued by the federal aviation administration or other authorized agency of the United States
– A valid U.S. military identification card with a photograph
– A copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document that shows the name and address of the elector
(A cable bill, a telephone bill, documentation from a public institution of higher education in Colorado containing at least the name, date of birth, and
residence address of the student elector, or a paycheck from a government institution are sufficient forms of ID)
– A valid Medicare or Medicaid card
– A certified copy of a U.S. birth certificate
– Certified documentation of naturalization
– A valid student identification card with a photograph issued by a institution of higher education in Colorado

American Crossroads uses the most up-to-date information available, but all absentee voters are encouraged to check with their local clerk or their Secretary of State to confirm their absentee voting requirements before they submit an absentee voting registration so that they do not have any difficulties casting their ballot.
