Trusted Info 2020

Discerning trusted election information for the 2020 General Election and stopping misinformation.

Think Before You Link
This guide from the Cyber Infrastructure and Security Agency (CISA) provides tips to help you discern between fact and fiction.

Rumor vs. Reality
This helpful page from CISA addresses common rumors that arise before Election Day, on Election Day, and after Election Day, and they provide correct information addressing each rumor.

Your Trusted Sources
When it comes to Adams County’s elections, your trusted sources are AdamsVotes.com and GoVoteColorado.gov. We also provide regular updates on our verified social media pages, Facebook and Twitter.

Opinions vs. Facts
The Colorado Secretary of State created the “Opinions Are Fun. Facts Are Better” campaign providing up-to-date information on current security threats and resources you can use to fight back with facts.

Know Where to Go
AdamsVotes.com provides all the information and resources you need to cast your ballot:

Ballots must be received by 7 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 3. Postmarks do not count as received-by dates.

Track Your Ballot
There are two ways you can check on the status of your ballot. BallotTrax allows you to receive notifications via text or email or to do a one-time status check. Enter your information on their website.

You can also do a one-time status check on the Secretary of State’s website. Enter your information to retrieve your registration, then click on the “Ballot Information” tab above your name to see your ballot’s status.

Make Sure Your Vote Counts
We use your signature to verify you are who you say you are before we accept and count your ballot. If our election workers are unable to match your signature to what is on file (through previous mail ballots, signatures at the DMV or on your license, signatures from other government agencies, etc.), you’ll be asked to cure your ballot.

Voters who have a signature discrepancy and need to cure their ballots will be sent a letter via USPS or an email. This communication will include instructions on how to return the signed affidavit with a copy of their ID to our Elections Department. Voters can also use their smartphones to cure their ballots using the TXT2Cure system.

Be sure to follow the instructions carefully and contact our office if you have any questions: 720.523.6500 or adams.elections@adcogov.org.
