What is Ballot Curing?

Voters whose mail ballots are rejected due to a missing or discrepant signature, or failure to enclose a photocopy of an acceptable form of ID with their ballot may "cure" their ballot. This means they can provide a signature or photocopy of acceptable ID and ensure their ballots are counted. Colorado has TXT2Cure making curing quick and easy.
