One more barrier to voting just collapsed. You can text to register.

Text “Colorado” or “CO” to 28683 and the Colorado Secretary of State will send you a link to register online.

There is a new way to register to vote. Just text “Colorado” or “CO” to 28683 and the Colorado Secretary of State will send you a link to register online.

You can also look up your existing voter registration information, find out about dates and deadlines and see where and how to vote.

The Colorado Secretary of State was one of the first states to allow online voter registration. The office worked with the Georgia-based company, Global Mobile, to develop this new service designed for phones.

This removes maybe a step and a half from having to google the secretary of state’s site and look for the voter registration link. We’ll save you that step here, as well.

But hey, every little bit helps. I can renew my library books online, and I still manage to let them go past due.
