Happy election eve, Denver! There’s a lot going on right now, and we’re following it all, putting relevant (and fun!) election information together in this post, which we’ll update throughout the day.

We’ll be back at it tomorrow with another liveblog that we’ll update throughout the day and night as results roll in.

🚗12:18 p.m. Heads up, drivers: A slice of 14th Avenue is closed downtown.

The Denver Elections Division said 14th Avenue between Cherokee and Bannock streets has been closed to traffic. This helps people who want to drop off ballots at the drive-thru location, which you can access by driving northbound on Bannock, between 13th and 14th avenues. — Esteban L. Hernandez

😮 9:15 a.m. You guys are really voting out there

As of Oct. 31, 300,690 of you had cast your ballot in Denver. That’s 65.5 percent of eligible voters. Fun fact: The Highland Rec Center has the most voter traffic.

These figures from Denver Elections will be updated midday.

🗳️ 8:30 a.m. First things first: information you need to vote.

Here’s where to vote, if you’re an in-person kinda person. (And at this point, you should be — it’s too late to mail in your ballot.)

If you’d like to vote in person, Denver Elections has this nifty tool that keeps tabs on wait times at different voting centers.

If you still need to register to vote, start that process here.

If you need help deciphering all those Denver ballot measures, check out our ballot guide (en español). If you need help with your whole ballot, check out CPR’s guide.

And here’s how to pick all those judges.
