Last chance to vote in June 28 primary: Drop your ballot at the UMC

Don’t miss your opportunity to participate in Colorado’s primary election!

What to know

  • It is never too late to register to vote—you may register to vote up to and including Election Day!
  • Registered Democrats vote in the Democratic Primary; Republicans in the Republican Primary
  • Unaffiliated voters may vote in either party’s primary but may only vote in one primary. 
  • Colorado is an all-options state: Registered voters are mailed ballot, which they can vote and return, or any voter can instead vote in-person at a vote center (see below).

Did you receive your ballot in the mail?

  • Drop your ballot off at the ballot dropbox outside of the UMC (located on the sidewalk leading up to the Southside Terrace on Euclid Avenue). The recommended deadline to return your ballot by mail has passed.
  • Not a Boulder County ballot? No problem—Colorado voters can use any official clerk dropbox in the state to return their mail ballot. As long as it is received to an official county clerk dropbox by 7 p.m. on Election Day, county clerks then make sure it is sent to right county for counting. 
  • See dropbox locations in Boulder County.

Didn’t receive your ballot in the mail? No problem! At the UMC Voter Service Center, you can:

  • Drop off your ballot (all Colorado voters)
  • Register to vote/update your registration 
  • Vote in person* 
  • Request a replacement* 

Operating hours are 8 a.m.–6 p.m. Monday, June 27, 8 a.m.–6 p.m. and 7 a.m.–7 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, June 28.

Don’t forget to bring valid ID such as your Buff OneCard or Colorado driver’s license/ID. See other ID options here.

*For out-of-county Colorado students, we can issue statewide ballots only; candidates for local contents will not appear.

If you are a student and have questions regarding registration, please visit Boulder County’s student voting guidelines. For on-campus students, you must have residence hall mailing address and your mailbox number. An alternative source for that information is in your housing assignment confirmation email, which may still be your MyCULiving portal.

Questions? Never hesitate to ask! Call 303-413-7740, email vote@bouldercountyvotes.org, or find us on social media at Boulder County Clerk / Elections.

Boulder County residents encouraged to prepare for extreme summer temperatures

As the heat of summer approaches, Boulder County Public Health recommends that residents and workers prepare for periods of extreme heat and offers tips to help everyone keep themselves, friends, family and pets safe when temperatures rise.

When temperatures reach 105 degrees Fahrenheit or above, everyone is at risk of heat-related illness. Heat-related illness and heatstroke can be fatal if not treated appropriately.

Air conditioning is the most effective way to stay safe during a heat emergency. Fans are not effective at lowering body temperatures and keeping vulnerable populations safe.

Some members of our county’s communities face higher risks during high temperatures. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says athletes, people 65 and over, infants, children, individuals with chronic conditions, low-income households and outdoor workers are especially at risk of heat-related illness.

Faculty: You'll need to update any OneSearch hyperlinks by July

magnifying glass on laptop keyboard

The University Libraries is updating the main online library search as part of a planned move to a new library services platform, the Future Of Libraries Is Open (FOLIO). The new OneSearch will launch on June 20 and will offer a cleaner, more modern search of the catalog and a new look for the search bar.

This means that OneSearch permalinks to books, articles and journals currently used in syllabi, courses and elsewhere will no longer work, effective July 2022. Faculty will need to update any permalinks they are using to point to the new OneSearch.

Please contact the libraries at libera@colorado.edu for assistance in migrating your links to function within the new interface. Examples of these links:

  • https://go.exlibris.link/2P2XFCFK
  • http://tinyurl.com/y5gxjdfy
  • Links that begin with https://ucblibraries.summon.serialssolutions.com/

We are excited to update this library service and hope to make the transition as seamless as possible.

Campus community directed to Boulder County dashboard for COVID-19 data

The CU Boulder COVID-19 dashboard has been retired as of May 31, 2022. Archived data remains accessible for the fall 2020, spring 2021, fall 2021 and spring 2022 semesters. 

Boulder County continues to publish the most current local COVID-19 metrics, which incorporate case metrics for CU Boulder affiliates living in the county.

While Boulder County is currently classified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the High community level, there are no on-campus restrictions at this time. We will continue to monitor local conditions, and implement a framework for public health and COVID-19 decision-making that follows CDC guidance.

CU Boulder continues to take the following measures to help minimize transmission of COVID-19:

  • CU Boulder’s vaccine/booster requirement remains in place for students, faculty and staff.
  • Masks and rapid antigen tests for home use continue to be available for students and employees at distribution sites across campus, including the University Memorial Center (UMC), Center for Academic Success and Engagement (CASE), Sustainability, Energy and Environment Community (SEEC) and the Student Recreation Center.
    • Home tests are also available on the third floor of Wardenburg Health Center.
  • Free COVID-19 testing and vaccination continue to be available through Medical Services.

The campus case investigation and contact tracing team remains available to answer questions from individuals testing positive or exposed to COVID-19, as well to provide consultation to departments and supervisors. They can be reached at 303-735-0017 or contacttracing@colorado.edu.
