DENVER -- So far, more than 2.5 million Coloradans have voted. That's nearly 89% of the entire turnout for the 2016 election.

If you still need to vote, you can put your ballot in an official drop box or do it in person. It's now too late to vote by mail.

One of the efforts being made is through the group Roll to the Polls Denver. They're trying to match people up in voting areas to be able to go drop off their ballots in ways that don't involve cars.

“Essentially started as bicyclists wanting to go on ride to the polls, but we did decide to expand it,” Roll to the Polls Founder Loren Hansen said.

They've now included RTD riders and those in wheelchairs, in a non-partisan effort to help people vote.
