(The Center Square) – Colorado voters can cast their ballot for the presidential primary now at voting centers throughout the state and drop boxes will be available Tuesday, according to Democrat Secretary of State Jena Griswold.

Griswold also advised voters planning to return their ballot through the U.S. Postal Service should mail it by today to ensure it’s received by the voter’s county election official by election day on March 5.

“Today is the last suggested day to return your ballot by mail,” Griswold said in a statement. “Starting tomorrow please return your ballot to a voting center, drop box or vote in person. Eligible Coloradans can still register to vote.”
