Americans are more mobile than ever -- 29 million voting age citizens move each year -- but voter registration often doesn't move with them. According to a study by the Pew Center on the States, one in four of these voters mistakenly think that changing their address automatically updates their voting address as well.
Fortunately, under COVAME a Colorado voter can stay registered even after moving within the state. Any voter can visit a VSPC to update their registration with a new address and still be given a regular ballot to vote. County election officials are required to compare and update voting rolls based on National Change of Address (NCOA) information received from the U.S. Postal Service. The process means that so long as a voter lives in Colorado, he or she will always be able to cast a ballot that counts.
