You promised you would do this sooner, but here you are, a day before Election Day and not yet registered to vote.

The good thing is you still have time to register. Colorado has same-day voter registration, which means if you’re in Denver you can register to vote at any of the city’s 11 voting centers or its mobile voting unit.

Denver Elections spokesperson Alton Dillard said this is what makes Denver and the state one of the easiest places in the country to vote. He said folks shouldn’t expect long lines on Tuesday if they’re hoping to register the same day, though he still encourages people to register as soon as possible.

Registering in-person is your best bet at this point. You can still register online, but you’ll have to show up in person anyway to pick up your ballot or vote on a tablet, so doing everything at the voting center makes things easier.

You’ll need to bring some identification to register. Your driver’s license will work, but there are several other acceptable forms of identification you can use. You can view the entire list on the Secretary of State’s website.

A list of the 11 voting centers in Denver is available online. The centers will be open today from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday during the election. The mobile voting center, Haul-N-Votes, will be at Swansea Recreation Center at 2650 E 49th Ave. during the same hours.

A sample ballot is available online so you can familiarize yourself with you’ll see on the ballot once you get it.
