With Election Day still more than a week away, more than 600,000 Colorado voters have already cast their ballots, the Colorado Secretary of State's Office reported this morning.
Secretary of State Scott Gessler's staff said that based on reports from Colorado's county clerks, 626,097 voters had returned their completed mail ballots or had voted in person at their county's designated early-voting polling places as of Friday morning.
On a statewide basis, that included ballots cast by: 244,263 Republicans; 225,850 Democrats; 149,877 voters unaffiliated with any political party; 3,258 Libertarians; 1,159 Green Party members; 1,035 American Constitution Party Members; and 655 Americans Elect Party members.

“We still need to get that SOB Puddwhacker (Perlmutter) out of office, too.”
Yup. But I hear (not my district) from well-informed people that race is looking awfully good.
What I’d really like to see is Danny Stroud perform a miracle and take-down DeGette, my second least favorite Coloradan. That is not out of the realm of possible, with the South Jeffco precincts that were added in redistricting.
And, if Kevin Lundberg can take out Polis, it would be a near perfect year. That one is close.
I’ve read several threads on FR the past couple of days that have talked about how one party or the other is leading in absentee and/or early voting.
I always vote on election day, so I can’t figure out what is being done with the early/absentee votes. Aren’t votes supposed to be counted AFTER the polls close on election day? ....Are they already counting votes? If they are, and publicizing the results, that will influence election day voting.
“Arent votes supposed to be counted AFTER the polls close on election day? ....Are they already counting votes? If they are, and publicizing the results, that will influence election day voting.”
Indeed, early vote counting doesn’t start until after a state’s polls has closed. However, one can make a few trend inferences about numbers of early ballots, relative party ratios of early ballots returned, comparisons of same with 2008 numbers, etc.
With the redistricting I think we've got a real chance this time
My Kevin Lundberg sign disappeared again last night, glad I picked up spares.
I went to my local library here in Palm Beach County to vote today at 1300E. It was FL’s first day of early voting. The lines were out of the buillding and there was no place to park. I’ll go back later.
Is it a good sign though?
I can’t say. I never even got in line to see if I could pick up any vibes.

Thanks for the reply confirming that they are not counting early or absentee votes now.
In other words, all of this hype about one or the other candidate “leading” in the voting at this time is just BS based on guesswork and phony estimates.
