The Governor of Colorado has issued an Executive Order that temporarily suspends the requirement to register in person during the pandemic. Specifically, the Order suspends the requirement that registrants provide a current photograph or a set of fingerprints to verify their identity during registration. As a result, registrants are allowed to register using alternate effective means determined by local law enforcement.
The purpose of the Executive Order, issued on April 6, is to “mitigate the effects of the pandemic, prevent further spread, and protect against overwhelming our health care resources.” The Order addresses a wide range of state regulations, including those related to the renewal of drivers licenses, claiming of lottery prizes and taxi operations. The Order will remain in effect at least until April 30 when it could be extended.
