Colorado's Language Assistance Hotline
Call 303-860-6970 and ask to be connected to an interpreter.
Language assistance is available to general election voters beginning Monday, Oct. 17 through Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 8.
From Oct. 17-Nov. 4 during regular business hours, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. MT.
On Monday, Nov. 7 and Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 8, the hotline will be available from 7 a.m.-7 p.m.
Beginning Monday, Oct. 17, Colorado voters may call the Secretary of State’s Language Assistance Hotline for assistance in interpreting their 2022 election ballot. The new hotline will enable Spanish, Korean, Chinese, Taiwanese or Vietnamese speakers to receive real-time translations of their ballot content from live interpreters. Additional languages are available for interpretation upon request.
“Voting should be accessible to every Colorado voter,” said Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold. “The new Language Assistance Hotline does exactly that by assisting Colorado citizens who may only speak or read limited English with live ballot interpretation.”
To access the hotline, voters may call the Secretary of State’s Office directly at 303-860-6970 and a staff member will connect callers with an interpreter. Voters may also call their respective county clerk’s office or visit a voting center and speak to an election judge or county staff about using the hotline.
In 2022, the Language Assistance Hotline is available to voters for the general election beginning Monday, Oct. 17 through Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 8.

The Language Assistance Hotline is available to voters as a result of HB21-1011. Per Colorado Statute, interpretation services may only be provided for interpretation of the ballot content, and not on Bluebook content or to describe the measures. This includes providing instruction guidance on completing the ballot, such as:
Election judges and staff may send a voter in need of assistance on other matters such as updating registration to other resources for additional information.
Eligible Coloradans may still register to vote and update their voter registration at GoVoteColorado.gov through Oct. 31 to receive a ballot in the mail. After Oct. 31, Coloradans may still register to vote, receive a ballot, and vote in person at a voting center until 7 p.m. on Election Day.
