DENVER - Almost one million Coloradans have cast early votes, according to new statistics from Secretary of State Scott Gessler. The data also shows that more Republicans have cast early ballots than Democrats.
Gessler's office announced that 965,510 people have voted so far. Of those, 343,721 were registered Democrats and 370,982 were Republicans.

From the early vote count, I’d say CO goes Red on November 6th.
State records show that in total, Republicans outnumber Democrats by about 7,000 registrations, and by about 41,000 “active” registrations. (”Inactive” registrations are far more likely to be Democrat, by 34,000).
Keep flipping those 2008 states!!
The lowest point of elevation in Colorado is higher than the tallest point of elevation in Pennsylvania.
Among active registrations, 41% of Republicans have voted, compared to 40% of Democrats. The difference is less than 1%.
Among all registrations, more than 32% of Republicans have voted, compared to less than 30% of Democrats.
The real turnout gap is among the unaffiliated, about 35% of all registrants, and 30% of all active registrants. Only 19% of unaffiliated registrants (31% of active, unaffiliated registrants) have voted.
Didn’t the Republicans lead in early voting in 2008 also? I guess it all went downhill from there then.
The Buckeye States early-voting system only requires a person to fill out an absentee vote form and present identification such as a utility bill, bank statement or other document with a name and address on it before casting a ballot. Such documents are easily forged and essentially unverifiable.
Patrick Moran, who was serving as field director for his father, Rep. Jim Moran, Virginia Democrat, is under police investigation after being caught on video last week by undercover auteur James OKeefe describing in detail how this type of fraud can be committed. You have to forge it, the younger Mr. Moran can be heard saying. Its got to look good.
Those potentially engaged in election-altering fraud may think the game ends on Election Day, but it doesnt. The country is well past the spirit of the razor-close 1960 election in which Richard Nixon declined to challenge tainted Illinois ballots because he didnt want to divide the country. Al Gore changed all that in 2000. Evidence of widespread fraud in 2012 could lead to recounts, electoral-vote challenges, or worse. Enforcing voter ID laws and regularly cleaning the voter rolls would go a long way toward ensuring the worst never happens.
