Colorado is one of 24 states that has a state election law which requires an 8 day ballot cure period to determine the final official results of each election. Local election officials are required to notify a voter if there is a missing signature or if their signature is rejected because it does not match the signature in the voter's file. During the 8 days, this gives the voter an opportunity to correct the issue so that their vote can be counted. Voters have until 11:59pm on November 16th to fix their ballot. Colorado Law also requires that Montrose County Elections continues to receive mail from Uniformed and Overseas Citizens during the cure period.
