Coloradans are Voting in Record Numbers

According to data just released by the Colorado Secretary of State’s office, nearly 1 million ballots have already been returned ahead of the June 30 Primary Election. This is a HUMONGOUS jump from 2018, and it’s not a story that we’ve seen mentioned yet.

Take a look at a comparison of ballot returns today and with five days remaining until the Primary Election in 2018. We’re basing these comparisons on ballot return press releases issued by the Colorado Secretary of State’s office in 2018 (here) and 2020 (here).

 

We’ll have more commentary on why these numbers are so huge as soon as we figure that out. It may be the coronavirus and people spending more time at home; it’s harder to forget about that ballot on your kitchen table when you’re sitting at your kitchen table for six hours every day.

    The 2016 primary, a closer analogy to this year (Presidential election, WITH a Senate primary for one party), had a total vote of  644,723 votes — or 24.6%.

    With days to go, the 2020 total vote is 928,028 — of 3,500,219 eligible — or 26.5%.
