Voter Registration
If you are new to Colorado or need to change your address, go to www.govotecolorado.gov  to register or update your voter registration information.

Eligible individuals can register to vote through Election Day in Colorado, but please note that how you register to vote matters.

If you register by mail or online through www.govotecolorado.gov at least eight days before the election, the Adams County Clerk and Recorder will automatically mail you a ballot.

If you register seven days or less before the election, you must visit one of the Voter Service & Polling Centers to get a ballot

If you register through a voter registration drive, your application must be submitted no later than 22 days before the election.

Voter Service & Polling Centers
Check the Adams County Election Office’s website to get current information for Voter Service & Polling Center locations and hours. These centers provide voters with the following services:

  • Register to vote
  • Update your voter registration
  • Request a new or replacement ballot
  • Drop off your voted mail ballot
  • Vote on an ADA-accessible ballot marking device

24-Hour Ballot Drop Box Locations
Check the Adams County Election Office's website to get a current list of 24-hour ballot drop box locations. One is located conveniently in the south (Administration) parking lot at the Northglenn City Hall.

Track Your Ballot

Voters can track the status of their mail ballot. This includes from the time the Adams County Clerk and Recorder mails the outgoing ballot packet to when their voted ballot is received and accepted for counting. Notifications can be sent by phone, email, or text. Voters who have an email address on file will be automatically enrolled in the ballot tracking program. If you did not receive an auto-enrollment notification, you can sign up at http://colorado.ballottrax.net.

Living Situation Does Not Affect the Right to Vote
In Colorado, every eligible person has the right to vote. Individuals who do not have a fixed permanent address, or who cannot afford regular or adequate shelter, do not lose that right. People experiencing homelessness can register to vote by using a “home base” address.

Additional information for voters with disabilities or other circumstances (overseas and military voters, students living on campus, people with convictions, etc.) is available on the Secretary of State’s website.

City Election Information
The City of Northglenn conducts municipal elections on the first Tuesday in November in odd-numbered years. The next city election will be held on Nov. 7, 2023. The City of Northglenn is divided into four wards. Each ward is represented by two City Council members that serve four-year staggered terms. The mayor is elected at-large every four years. City elections are non-partisan, which means City Council candidates do not run under any party label. 

The next regular municipal election will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2023.
The following City Council positions will be elected:

  • Mayor - 4-year term
  • Ward 1 Council member - 4-year term
  • Ward 2 Council member - 4-year term
  • Ward 3 Council member - 4-year term
  • Ward 3 Council member - 2-year term*
  • Ward 4 Council member - 4-year term

Voters may also be asked to consider ballot questions at the Nov. 7, 2023 election.

*Voters in Ward 3 will elect two Council members in November 2023. Council member Duran Mullica  resigned her position on April 21, 2022, which created a vacancy on Council for a Ward 3 representative. Richard Kondo was appointed to fill the Ward 3 vacancy on May 9, 2022 and will serve in this position until the Nov. 7, 2023 election.
