DENVER (KDVR) — The Denver Sheriff’s Department is bringing in-person voting to inmates for the mayoral runoff election.

For the first time in 12 years, Denver voters have the chance to elect a new mayor. Without a candidate having more than 50% of the votes in their favor, the race has moved to a runoff election to happen on June 6 with the top two candidates, Kelly Brough and Mike Johnston.

A press release from the Denver Sheriff’s Department said that inmates in Denver jails will be able to cast their ballots in person for the mayoral runoff election Wednesday at the Van Cise-Simonet Detention Center and Thursday at the Denver County Jail.

The Colorado Criminal Justice Reform Coalition is encouraging eligible voters, behind bars or not, to register and vote.

Which inmates are eligible to vote?

Even though inmates have restricted freedoms, some people behind bars can still make their voices heard and vote.

People who are currently in jail awaiting trial, on bond or are incarcerated serving a misdemeanor sentence are eligible to vote.

Those who registered to vote before they were incarcerated need to register again, as there is a good chance those names were removed from the Secretary of State’s list of registered voters, according to the CCJRC.

Colorado law states, ” No person while serving a sentence of detention or confinement in a correctional facility, jail, or other location for a felony conviction is eligible to register to vote or to vote in any election. A confined prisoner who is awaiting trial but has not been tried or who is not serving a sentence for a felony conviction shall be certified by the institutional administrator, may register to vote pursuant to this article 2, and may list his or her confinement location as his or her ballot address in accordance with section 1-2-204 (2)(f.3). An individual serving a sentence of parole is eligible to register to vote and to vote in any election.”

People who are incarcerated for a felony are not eligible to vote. Those with pending restitution fees and residents who are on probation or parole are eligible to vote.

It is considered a class five felony crime if someone who is not eligible to vote illegally votes or registers to vote.
