DENVER, Colo. (KKTV) – Voters in Colorado can use their smartphones to correct ballot signature discrepancies in the last election.
Through the TXT2Cure initiative, if a voter is notified by their county clerk of a signature discrepancy, they can send a “Colorado” SMS to 2VOTE (28638). You will receive a response with a link to click.
From there, enter your voter ID number printed on the rejection notice from your county election office. Next, you will need to confirm that you have returned your ballot from this election, sign the affidavit on your phone, take a photo of acceptable ID and press “Submit”.
The information is then sent electronically to the county clerk for processing. Voters must complete these steps by midnight on November 10 for the ballot to be counted.
“Last year, we launched TXT2Cure, a new technological advancement that makes it easier for voters to correct their signatures on their ballot,” said Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold. “Based on the incredible success of the program, I am pleased that Colorado voters statewide once again have the opportunity at their fingertips to correct ballot signing discrepancies in November. This innovative program helps ensure that every vote counts in our elections.
In last year’s election, 11,085 ballots that may not have been counted were corrected or corrected using this system.
