22 percent of Colorado voters have cast ballots

DENVER, Colorado ” Nearly 22 percent of Colorado’s registered voters have cast their ballots by mail or at early-voting polling places ahead of the Nov. 4 election.

State officials said about 698,000 of the state’s 3.2 million registered voters had cast ballots by Sunday night.

That includes more than 569,000 mail-in ballots received by county clerks and nearly 129,000 ballots cast in early voting.

As of late last week, Democrats held a slight edge in early voting, with 219,000 ballots cast, compared with 215,000 cast by Republicans and 131,000 cast by unaffiliated voters.

Those numbers don’t include nearly 128,000 people who have voted since Thursday. Updated party breakdowns won’t be released until next Friday.
