Colorado Secretary of State’s Office Launches New Website Domain- coloradosos.gov

Denver, August 25, 2021 - Visitors to the Colorado Secretary of State’s Office website will find it has moved to a new address, with all services now located at www.coloradosos.gov. The previous address, www.sos.state.co.us, will still direct users to the office’s website during the transition, and all services available to users online will remain unchanged.

“Switching to a .gov domain provides further assurance to the public that the information found on our website is official, trusted information,” said Secretary of State Jena Griswold. “This new domain allows us to better and more seamlessly interface with some of our federal partners and is another valuable line in our defense against disinformation.”

Registering as a .gov domain requires an entity to submit evidence to the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) that they are truly registering on behalf of legitimate local, county, or state governments. The new .gov domain also makes it more difficult for malicious actors and scammers to co-opt government websites. Using less secure domains such as .com allows cybercriminals and malicious actors to more easily impersonate government officials in attempts to defraud the public.

The new domain is part of a long-range initiative to increase security and counter foreign disinformation. In 2019, all of the office’s voter resources, including online voter registration, were moved to a .gov domain at www.GoVoteColorado.gov.
