    Postmarks DO COUNT for Voter Registration, so all your form needs is to be postmarked by 10/14.  However, postmarks do not count for the actual ballots, which must be mailed in or turned in to an official drop off point by 8 PM on 11/4...

      voters--postmarks count, but there are a few ways to register after the deadline and have it still count--using Denver county as an example: (from the election commision site):

      Emergency Registration
      You may register to vote in an election after the voter registration deadline has passed if you appear in person at the Denver Elections Division, declare under oath that you wish to vote in the election and precinct for which the deadline was missed, and attest under oath to one of the following conditions:

         * You were registered to vote in another Colorado county, moved to Denver County prior the deadline, but failed to register prior to the deadline.
         * You applied to register to vote prior to the deadline using a federal post card application or mail registration application.
         * You registered with a voter registration drive prior to the deadline and are able to produce a receipt from the registration form you filled out or state the location of the voter registration drive and provide an approximate date that you filled out the registration form.
         * You registered at another agency under the National Voter Registration Act (Motor Voter): Department of Motor Vehicles, Human Services, Social Services etc.

      I'm smart. I'm watching. And I won't shut up.
