2020 General Election Candidate List Webpage Now Live

Denver, August 7, 2020 – Today, the Colorado Secretary of State’s office announced the launch of a webpage listing the names of candidates for federal and state offices who have filed candidacy paperwork with the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office.

This is an active candidate list, and candidates will continue to be added and removed as the Secretary of State’s office completes the processing of paperwork and candidates withdraw and are replaced. The list will be finalized and the candidates certified to the ballot on September 4.

The major and minor party candidates are listed in ballot order as they were chosen in the lot drawing conducted by the Secretary of State’s office. State statute requires that unaffiliated candidates be placed after major and minor party candidates on the ballot, and they are so ordered on this list. RTD candidates are currently listed in alphabetical order by the last name of the candidates. They will eventually be ordered by a lot drawing that will be held at the end of August.

State statute requires that presidential and vice-presidential candidates be ordered in three tiers: major party candidates followed by minor party candidates followed by unaffiliated candidates. Within these tiers, the candidates are ordered on the ballot by the last name of the presidential candidates.

Coloradans can update and verify voter registration or register to vote online at GoVoteColorado.gov.
