Republicans dominate early voting numbers in Colorado

DENVER (KDVR) — Election day is on Tuesday and county clerks across the state are already processing ballots, even though results won’t be released until 7 p.m. on election night. 

The Colorado Secretary of State’s Office released the latest numbers on voter turnout as of Feb. 29.

There are about 1.8 million total eligible, active unaffiliated voters in Colorado. 

Unaffiliated voters in Colorado will receive a ballot for each party but Coloradans can only vote on one ballot for it to be counted.

Voters have had their ballots since about Feb. 12. 

So far, about 762,368 ballots have been returned state-wide. About 376,517 of those are Republican, 268,261 for Democrats and 117,590 are still in process.  

More than 278,585 of them have returned their ballots so far. A reported 111,506 of those ballots were for the Republican primary and 49,572 were for the Democratic primary.  

Coloradans have until March 5 at 7 p.m. to turn in their ballots. Voters can no longer mail-in ballots, but drop boxes are still open 24-7. 

The Supreme Court, in an unusual announcement, signaled it will release at least one opinion on Monday morning, a signal the justices could hand down a decision on former President Trump’s 14th Amendment case that kicked him off the Colorado ballot. 

Monday is also the day before Super Tuesday, when primary voters in Colorado and more than a dozen other states will cast their ballots, with hundreds of delegates at stake as Trump moves closer to locking up the Republican nomination.
