No matter who wins the runoff for Denver mayor, their agenda won’t have the majority of resident support — unless voter apathy counts.
A monitor was appointed because Elbert County Clerk Dallas Schroeder was accused of mishandling ballots in the primary and allowing copies of voting machine hard drives by unauthorized people.
Colorado rejected nearly 29,000 votes in the 2020 election because the ballots didn’t meet requirements in state law. In the vast majority of the ballots voided, the voter’s signature didn’t match the one in state records, and in other cases, newly registered voters didn’t provide the required identification, according to Colorado Sun analysis of preliminary […]
In the most difficult, most scrutinized, and most contentious general election in modern history, Coloradans rose to the challenge. While results are yet to be finalized and ballots are still being processed, it is nevertheless clear that the turnout for the 2020 election in our state has been historic. As of Nov. 12, 3,314,960 Coloradans […]
Empowered by mail ballots and energized by the nation’s polarized political climate, more Coloradans voted this year than ever before in the state’s history.

This year’s early-vote numbers show higher turnout than in 2016 among both political parties. Unaffiliated voters have cast […]
Six years ago, Cory Gardner and John Hickenlooper appeared on the same ballot. In the U.S. Senate race, Gardner — then a congressman — upset a Democratic incumbent senator in a strong Republican year. In the governor’s race, Hickenlooper beat back a GOP challenger to win his second term. Plenty of similarities exist between the […]
Mailing it in is one thing Colorado does well. When it comes to mail-in ballots, a recent hot topic for President Donald Trump, Colorado is a mile higher than most of our sister states.
