7NEWS ^ | 11/06/2013 | Phil Tenser

Republicans are voting at a higher rate throughout most of Colorado's counties, even in Democratic strongholds like Denver and Boulder counties.

Based on data provided Tuesday morning by the Secretary of State, 83,662 more Republicans than Democrats had submitted their ballots early. That data doesn't account for any ballots dropped off Tuesday or those completed and submitted at a polling place.

I was going to start a CO election results thread. Amendment 66 has national implications as Bloomberg and the Gates donated heavily for its passage. Wanting to change the CO constitution and not only raise taxes but also have a tiered tax system.

Well, shoot. Maybe we’ll get a bit of good news tonite. Christie winning isn’t much good news. Cuccinelli probably losing, even by a small margin, is still a loss and will be blamed on the Tea Party.

The large education tax Amendment 66 is apparently failing even in Boulder and Denver.

Denver Pest reporting:

7:40 p.m.: Rejection of Amendment 66 continued to hold strong with 42 percent of the statewide vote counted, as no votes held a 63-37 percent lead with over 600,000 votes cast.

With 612,495 votes counted, Amendment 66 was losing with 65 percent of voters opposed and 35 percent of voters in support.

The Yes on 66 campaign is discouraged that only 847,660 votes have been cast statewide as of Monday morning — they’d hoped to be over 1 million at this point — with registered Republicans having turned in roughly 76,000 more ballots than registered Democrats.

Thanks, george76. Looks like some local property tax hike attempts failed, too. They’ll continue to do the strange assessments to perpetrate their own property tax hikes, but let ‘em operate from the dark side.

Yup. As nutty as things are these days, we were pleasantly surprised.

Goofy Boulder Co and Ft Collins voted for a moratorium on fracking. What a bunch of idiots. Unfortunately, their stupidity might affect us, too. A little justice would be for them to be forced to ration their power. Maybe a power cut of 20% to the cities in question and watch them whine and complain when the lights don't come on when they flip the switch. Better yet, no (or less) heat for their houses. We are heading into winter.

Funny thing about the left — they are all for the feel good stuff but perplexed when it no longer feels good and it starts to hurt. Apparently, they are not able to figure out that what they are demanding now will have consequences later.

A good example of this is Obamacare.

Dont worry, the Dems will round up enough illegals with same day registration (thanks Chickenpooper) and LIV to keep Colorado blue.... Unless we grow a spine and start to fight we will always be the nice guys that finish last
