Downward GOP Trend Continues in Ballot Returns

  • 2 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

As Kyle Clark of 9News explains:

 

Clark’s Tweet got us thinking about ballot returns in ALL recent elections, so we did some quick research. As you can see from the chart below, Republican ballot returns are at the lowest level they have been in any of the last six election cycles.

 

Returns in 2021 are down across the board compared to the last off-year election in 2019, but the decrease is much more apparent for registered Republicans (in case you’re wondering, voter turnout was higher in 2019 in large part because of significant expenditures both for and against Proposition CC).

Ballot returns for Republicans also saw the smallest increase of the three major voting categories in 2020. That stagnation appears to be continuing in 2021.

It’s hard to extrapolate much information from an off-year election cycle such as 2021, particularly when there is nothing on the ballot that is generating widespread interest among voters, but we can look at the ballot return trends for some guidance. Those trends definitely aren’t good for Colorado Republicans.

  1. I might have been posing on right wing internet forums warning people that the mail ballots glue sealer strips injected voters with nano tracking vaccines that were developed in George Soros' lab located deep inside Bill Gate's digestive system.

    Unless that is a felony, in which I case I am joking about that.

    1. I watched a scary sci-fi movie last night called "Voyagers" about a generation ship on an 86 year journey to settle a new planet.  The crew were a bunch of 20-somethings specially groomed for the mission by idealistic, but desperate adults.  One rebel nihilist instigated a mutiny by employing Trumpish fear and paranoia (and the occasional murder).

      I think it was inspired by today's general political histrionics, mixed with a bit of "Lord of the Flies".
