Polls open in LSC through 7 p.m. Tuesday

Colorado State University’s Lory Student Center hosts a voter service and polling center for all Larimer County residents who are eligible to vote.

The center is located in the North Ballroom of the LSC, which is on the third floor in the heart of the building. At this location, voters may:

  • Drop off completed ballots
  • Change their address
  • Register to vote
  • Cast a ballot

Larimer County voter service centers, including Lory Student Center’s North Ballroom, will be open for in-person voting and mail ballot drop-off from Oct. 24 through 7 p.m. Nov. 8, election day.

Low-cost metered parking — $1.75 per hour — on campus is available at the Engineering/Lory Student Center Lot and the Library lot. Voters also may consider riding MAX or Transfort to campus to cast their vote. The campus transit center is in the north end of the Lory Student Center.

If you’ve requested a mail-in ballot, they’re on their way. These ballots are being sent to voters beginning Oct. 17. The last day to register to receive a mail-in ballot for the general election is Monday, Oct. 31. However, voters can register after that date and cast a ballot in person at a voter service center. Colorado allows voters to register up through election day, and registration is still available on the Colorado Secretary of State’s website.

CSU is offering a computer station dedicated to the completion of online voter registration in the atrium of the Morgan Library.

Associated Students of Colorado State University also spent several weeks working across campus to encourage students and employees to register to vote. The effort, a partnership with non-partisan group New Era Colorado, resulted in 2,000 new or updated voter registrations.

“ASCSU is very active in the CSU community, and we want the CSU community to be active in our civic community,” said Josh Williams, ASCSU officer of governmental affairs. “We want as many people as possible to get out and vote. This is an especially imprortant message for the millennial generation, which now makes up the largest voting block but has a low turn-out rate in elections. A lot of people don’t think their vote count. We want people to know it does count, and that their voice can be heard.”

In addition, ASCSU is providing education to students that they can register and vote up until election day. ASCSU is also planning a watch party for election day. The party will provide a non-partisan environment in the Lory Student Center from 8-10 p.m. on election night.
