Poll Watchers


A poll watcher is a representative of a political party, candidate, civic organization or proposition who is legally assigned to a polling location to observe the conduct of the election. There are three categories of observers who are permitted in Voter Service and Polling Centers or Ballot Processing areas:


  • Media Observers are credentialed members of news media.
  • Official Observers are credentialed by Colorado Secretary of State or by federal government.
  • Poll Watchers are credentialed by county Clerk and Recorder. These instructions provide information on how to obtain credentials from Jefferson County Clerk and Recorder
