Outcome of Denver's Special Election

  • 8 Comments
  • by: Dan Willis

With 47,033 votes out of a likely 50,000-ish votes counted, the Charter change being voted on in Denver’s special elction was passing 68% – 32%.

As you might imagine I am not particularly thrilled with this outcome. But life does go on.

My biggest concern now is how this will all play out. The likely scenario at this point would seem to be the current appointed Clerk would run for the elected position. I find it ironic that some of the ballot issue’s supports were supporting it as an effort to limit Hick’s influence on the Commission. Now it looks like his appointee will likely be in charge of the whole shooting match.

As for Karen Morrissey’s campaign, it is ended as of tonight. Only logical since the office she was running for has been eliminated.

What I am going to miss most are the Election Commission meetings. It was great getting people who care about elections in one room and working through one issue or another.

    1. Her concerns are solely about elections. That is a very miniscule part of the job of the County Clerk. She had made it clear from the get go that if the city went this way, she would not be seeking the seat.

      If O’Malley runs, I doubt anyone would be able to beat her unless some very well-known popular former office-holder were to decide to run for it. I really don’t see that happening.

      I would imagine a lot of potential candidates would be put off by the fact that whoever gets elected will be under an intense microscope and expected to run flawless elections. That is not going to happen. All of this time we are spending on “rearranging the organizational chart” is taking away from fixing any of the real problems with our elections processes. Then add to that the whole act of integrating these two offices together. Anyone looking for fixes here will be sorely disappointed.

      The new Clerk will not take office (and control of the situation) until mid-July. At that point they will already be gearing up for the Nov. election.

            1. Sharron comes closest. AS she said last night, if she can organize Democrats, organizing Denver’s eledctions should be a breeze.
