Not quite the final word on the State House

  • 4 Comments
  • by: Dan Willis

Jeffco has apparently counted the provisional ballots for HD29. At least that is what I would interpret from the total number of votes cast going up by a few hundred in the past couple of days. If this is the case, Benefield has lost by 208 votes, and it is not a small enough margin to trigger a recount. So it appears the GOP really do have control of the House.

And in HD61, there is a court ruling ordering the SoS’s office to review all ballots in that race and to count write-in votes that may not have been counted previously. The issue is the correct process was to mark the box for write-in AND write-in the name. Apparently there were several ballots where the boxes were not marked, only the name was written in. The judge ruled the voters intent was clear and that they should be counted. This will not affect control, only the career of Rep. Curry and the Democrat who currently is considered the winner.

So the story continues to unfold….

  1. I have been informed that Jeffco is not done counting provisionals. I have no idea how many are left for HD29 but it would seem to me there would have to be a lot and they would have to be predominantrly for Benefield for her to win this at this point.

    Anything is possible, but my experience with provisionals is they will not overcome a 208 vote deficit on an area as small as a state house district.

    1. I’m not willing to mourn, or brag, until I know for sure, but could deal with either.

      For the record, my desire for her to win has become, shamefully, less about her as a legislator or control of the House and more about teaching people about celebrating too early.

      1. This will have GOP in control of one house and the Dems in control of the other. At some point they need to agree on a redistricting plan for the congressional races, or it will be decided by a judge as it was last time.
