Your vote countsThis week’s final Secretary of State ballot report shows the Republican share of the total vote up once again.  Republicans cut into the Democrats’ share of the total ballots submitted every day this week.

Yesterday’s results showed Democrats with 224,914 votes, which accounted for 39.3% of total ballots returned.  Today their share of the total ballots returned has slipped to 38.6%, while Republicans saw an uptick in their portion of the returns, moving from 34.2% to 34.7%.  Today’s report also shows more Republican ballots cast (45,668) in the past day than Democrat ballots returned (44,152).

As of today’s report, 697,414 ballots have been turned in.  For some context around that number, in the 2012 election, there were 2,569,516 presidential votes cast in Colorado.  This morning’s ballot chase break down is below:
