Primary Turnout Update: 12% of Ballots Returned

votebuttonThe Colorado Secretary of State’s office has updated its voter turnout (er, uh, ballot turn-in) numbers for the June 28th Primary. Here’s the latest as of Monday morning:


Ballots sent: 986,252;
Ballots returned: 119,614;
Percent: 12.12%


Ballots sent: 994,450;
Ballots returned: 121,183;
Percent: 12.18%

Note that the SOS has made a slight change to how it is reporting turnout numbers compared to last week’s announcement:

The county-by-county chart included in this release reflects a change in how the Colorado Secretary of State reports ballot returns. Last week’s release showed only ballots that already had gone through signature verification; today’s report and all subsequent ones will reflect the number of ballots received by the county, even if they are waiting to be reviewed by election judges.

    Democrats – not surprising. I did not have a single contested race on my ballot. But shouldn't the Republicans be getting more participation for their US Senate race?  Is this typical, or is it lower than in the past?

  2. Yeah – not surprising on the low turnout. My one choice here in Gilpin was Jared Polis vs. Write-In. I wasn't even aware that you could run a write-in campaign for a primary. Maybe it was a mis-print?

    I had lively races for DA and state Senate.   Went for Beth McCann and Lois Court.

    I didn't realize we lived so close, V. Court was on my ballot, too. I got shifted from SD 31 to 32 in the re-draw.
